Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has said that it is in total support of Super Eagles gaffer, Sunday Oliseh’s selection of players policy to the senior national team.
Coach Oliseh has made a dramatic u-turn on the invitation of players to the national team.
Oliseh had on Monday through his YouTube page announced a change in his initial position not to invite players who are not playing in top-flight leagues in the world.
The new Super Eagles coach noted that goalkeepers and players from the lower leagues who are exceptional would now be considered.
NFF president, Amaju Pinnick said yesterday that, “We support everything Oliseh is doing. He knows what’s best for his team and I can tell you that Oliseh has been working since he left the country.
“I am particularly impressed at his work ethics and professionalism. There is no action he takes that he does not first inform us (NFF) on the rationale behind the decision and the motive he intends to achieve with such a decision.”
The NFF boss further stated, “We need to give him time because everything he does is in the best interest of the country. We don’t have a problem with his change of position.”
Sunday Oliseh is expected to announce his list of call-ups for the 2017 AFCON qualifier against Tanzania in the coming week.
