Football: Oliseh Emerge Favourite For Eagles Job

Strong reports coming from the Nigeria Football Federation indicates that another former Super Eagles Captain is set to be named the new handler of the team.

Sunday Oliseh who was part of the 1994 African cup of Nations Winning Team is said to be the new coach of the Super Eagles after another former member of the team was sacked. The former Ajax, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund player who had a total of 63 caps for the Eagles who also played at two world cups is set to be appointed the coach of the Super Eagles in the next coming days as he is in talks with the Football Federation over a possible contract. 

This would not be the first time Oliseh's name would be among those gunning for the Eagles job, he was part of the coaches the Federation were considering before going with Stephen Keshi who guided the team to victory at the 2012 African Nations Cup. He was eventually left out because he didn't have any top flight experience in his coaching career as he has only handed Belgian third division side Vervietois between 2008 and 2009, though it must be said that Oliseh holds the acclaimed Uefa Pro License and was a member of the Fifa Technical Study Group for the 2013 U17 World Cup as well as the 2014 Fifa World Cup Brazil. Sunday Oliseh aslo worked under Keshi during the early 2000s when the latter was an assistant to coach Shaibu Amodu.
