‘He shouldn’t have been appointed at all’- Onigbinde blasts Sunday Oliseh and NFF in new interview



Former Super Eagles coach and technical committee member Chief Adegboye Onigbinde has blasted Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh in yet another interview, saying Oliseh is using his tenure as Super Eagles coach to learn the job of coaching as he hasn’t coached a big club or country before.

Onigbinde also talked about the duties of the technical committee especially as news filtered through social media today that some members of the committee had resigned from their post due to the NFF President’s perceived favoritism towards Sunday Oliseh.

“This is the foundation of our football problems; the position of our Technical Committee. Whether we like it or not, football is a prime matter and so the technical committee is supposed to be the central committee.” Onigbindetold

“The President, the Clerk, the messenger are all there to service the product of the Technical Committee and if the technical committee is not given the right of position, we will never get it right [sic].”

“The right of position starts from the composition of the committee itself. We knew the behaviour of this young man even when he was just the captain of the national team.

“Remember Mali (2002 Afcon), he came down as the leadership of the team and was insulting the Minister (Sports), is this not a continuation? You (NFF) didn’t consider that when you (Nff) were employing him; that’s number one.

“Number two, what was the depth of his experience? He has not coached a major club, he has not coached any national team and you now want him to perform experiment, to learn using the Nigerian national team; that is why I feel hurt. So these are the reasons why I asked – should he have been appointed at all from the beginning?”
