Super Eagles head Coach Sunday Oliseh will not be joining up with the home-based Super Eagles when they resume training camp for next year’s CHAN tournament in Abuja on Monday
Coach Oliseh who released the list of players for the CHAN 2015 tournament earlier in the week is said to have not still recovered fully from a virus infection which has made him to be inactive for some time now.
Twenty six players of the home-based Eagles will resume training in Abuja on Monday, December 14, ahead of the CHAN in Rwanda in January.
However, a top official informed Oliseh will only join up with the Eagles in South Africa when they set up training camp there later this month by which time he would have fully recovered.
“Oliseh will not come to Nigeria as he is still recovering from illness in Belgium. He will now join the Eagles in South Africa when they begin training camp there,” disclosed the official.
Oliseh himself has admitted he has not fully recovered from a virus infection, which has seen him lose weight dramatically.
The illness forced him to miss the CHAN Eagles second leg qualifier in Burkina Faso.
Assistant coach Salisu Yusuf is expected to lead the team in the absence of Oliseh as he did in Ouagadougou.
