I’m Too Big To Be Bribed

The new coach of the Super Eagles has debunked any suggestion that he would be influenced by agents and footballers to field them in the national team.

The newly appointed coach Sunday Oliseh has said that his regime as the head of the national team would be fair to all as he won’t fall prey to monetary incentive from players or their agent. Many of the previous team coaches had been accused of fielding players base on bias either due to exchange of cash or gifts but the former captain has said that this would not be the case with him in charge of the Eagles as he looks to build a fortified squad in his three-year contract.

Like I said earlier on, I will only invite players who merit [being] in the national team by playing regular football in top European and African leagues. I will call players who deserve to play for Nigeria. There will be no place for mediocrity in my team, I don’t want to believe that players and their agents bribe coaches to make the national team, but if it is true that it happens like the media has reported, I will say it is most unfortunate. I will not condone that. I am even too big to be bribed by any player. If it was so before, that era is gone because only the best will play for the Eagles”. This were the words of Sunday Oliseh according to Complete Sports.

Oliseh first game in charge of the Eagles would be will in September when the Super Eagles take on Tanzania in Dar es Salaam in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match.
