BREAKING: Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh, Resigns

I think Sunday Oliseh is an insecure man who lacks 'emotional maturity' to manage people. The controversial coach of Nigeria's Super Eagles has resigned, about seven months after he was appointed.

Oliseh, who announced his resignation on Twitter, said he took the decision due to the inability of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to honour the terms of his contract.

His exact words: “Due to contract violations, lack of support, unpaid wages, benefits to my players, assistant coaches and myself, I resign as Super Eagles Chief Coach.”

He thanked Nigerians for the opportunity of serving as the coach of the team in a preceding tweet: “I feel fortunate, blessed and eternally grateful for having the honour to play, captain and coach this great nation of ours, Nigeria.”

Oliseh, whose appointment was made with much fanfare by the NFF, soon started having problems with the executives of the federation over remuneration, match tactics and results.

He also had challenges managing the players. An altercation between the coach and the team’s former captain and the country’s most capped goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, led to the goalie’s premature resignation from the team last October.

Apparently, the last straw for Oliseh was the woeful outing of the Super Eagles at the CHAN competition in Rwanda, where the team were eliminated in the first round.

His video outburst where Oliseh said his critics her "mad" has nailed him. NFF, please get someone better!
