Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has resigned with immediate effect according to reports.
Oliseh broke the news of his resignation on his Twitter handle in the early hours of Friday after receiving the backlog of salaries owed him by the Nigeria. He gave several reasons for his resignation.
The former Nigeria captain leaves the Eagles in the middle of key Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, with back-to-back games against Egypt coming up in a month’s time. Albeit, Oliseh and his employers have been at loggerheads for weeks following the home-based Super Eagles’ early ouster from the African Nations Championship in January.
He did not take kindly to the criticism that trailed the CHAN outing and shot back via a YouTube video in which he exposed the NFF’s shoddy treatment of himself and his players, who were owed camp allowances and win bonuses and were left unmotivated throughout the tournament.
Oliseh was appointed in July 2015 as successor to Stephen Keshi and had since took charge of 14 official matches, losing one friendly against DR Congo in Belgium and a CHAN group match against Guinea that led to ealy elimination in Rwanda.
