Sunday Oliseh is turning to a drama king as he rants over the maltreatment he received from NIgerian Football Federation and fighting the negative perception Nigerian football lovers have of him.
“In my entire 23 years of involvement with the Super Eagles, never has the working conditions and player welfare been as bad as it was when I was in charge. The team stood out like beggars!” He narrated.
He talked about his near death experience as a coach of Super Eagles “One day whilst coaching the super Eagles in Abuja stadium prior to the Burkina Faso game I all of a
sudden felt dizziness, light headedness, headache and could barely stand,” Oliseh narrated. “I managed to finish the session before calling on the doctor into my room who was clueless to what was happening…“For weeks I was bed ridden, lost 7 kilos and could barely walk 5 metres without sitting down. My family was petrified and all feared the worst.
One thing was for sure though: had I not taking that evening flight to Germany when I did, there was a strong possibility of a far worse outcome. Thank God for his mercies.
“All through the last 4 months of my tenure as coach I was far from my complete healthy self and coached the team and stayed in my bedroom.
Often on my bed or sofa. “Imagine how betrayed and pained I must have felt with the lack of support at these life threatening times from my employers the NFF and the shady pressmen who made it a duty not to report the gravity of the illnesses that befell me and my assistant to the Nigerian people and kind of like wished us the worst!
“On the day I put in my resignation letter I was still far from my best health wise and I guess it is better staying alive than getting embroiled with these people who have no interest of Nigeria at heart.”
