Former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Ogochukwu Oliseh has stated that he will not coach the national team again if given the second chance.
Oliseh spoke with _The Punch_on Instagram live video chat and said he will not coach the team again.
The versatile midfielder said he loved coaching his country and working with the players but will not sacrifice his wellbeing in line for the job.
”No, I don’t have the intention of ever coaching the (Super) Eagles again. I loved working with the boys, I love coaching my country, but the atmosphere around it was no longer healthy.
“I didn’t want the job anymore. Health-wise I was not feeling too good; secondly, we were owed salaries. I was spending money on my health and on my team. I just couldn’t die on the job.
The ex-playee bemoaned the Nigerian Football Federation inability to pay him and his assistant salaries for four month despite he won trophies while playing for the country.
For him, he couldn’t stand the treatment at a point he was about to qualify the team for the world cup.
”Truth is, we have a foreign coach now and from what I heard and know, he is being paid four times the wages Stephen Keshi and I were paid and these are two players (himself and Keshi) who won trophies for Nigeria.
I’ve never heard Gernot Rohr complain about wages. Keshi, while he was coaching, was always complaining, when I was coaching for four months, I was unpaid, for six months my assistants were unpaid, so I had to leave the job; we were also being frustrated.”
Oliseh played 63 international matches for the Super Eagles scoring three goals.
He coached the Nigerian team from 2015 to 2016.
