The Nigeria Football Federation on Tuesday denied reports that a former Super Eagles player, Sunday Oliseh, had been contacted and selected as Super Eagles’ next coach.
The NFF terminated former Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi’s contract on Saturday, citing lack of commitment, and accusing Keshi of applying to the Ivorian FA for the vacant Coaching job which contravenes the two years contract he signed in April.
Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, the Chairman of the NFF Technical committee, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, said reports that Oliseh had been chosen were untrue.
“I am not aware of anything of such,” he said.
The NFF secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, declined comments when contacted.
Oliseh, who has a UEFA coaching license and has not been in an active coaching job lately, said in February that he was not interested in the Super Eagles job.
After Keshi’s sack, former Super Eagles head coach, and the Technical Director of the NFF, Shuaibu Amodu, was named alongside Salisu Yusuf, the acting Coach, as interim managers for the team as they play the qualifying series for the 2016 Cup of Nations, which will take place in Gabon.
