Newly employed Super Eagles Head Coach Sunday Oliseh has alleged that both his team officials and some executive members of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF connived to blackmail him as a player.
Oliseh made the revelation shortly after he was presented as the Senior National team handler maintained that his perceived stubbornness was as a result of his continued persistence to always see things done rightly.
The ex-Ajax player, however, assured of his readiness to do things differently especially now he has become a national team coach.
According to him, “You don’t have to judge me based on what you heard about me when I was a player. What some of us probably heard about me was cooked up against me and then there was no avenue to tell my own story unlike now that there is various ways of expressing oneself, including the social media.
“People may say Sunday is this, Sunday is that, the truth is that the last time you saw me in this country was probably 13 years ago. So, don’t judge Sunday with who you knew him to be.
“Coming back as a coach now, I’m not here to fight war, we are here to work. The relationship between the federation who is our employer and us as the employee is like father-son thing. Yes, sometimes there could be misunderstanding but that does not mean we won’t always find a meeting ground.
“The contract I have as Super Eagles coach is well spelt out. While discussing with the technical crew, we were told to outlined what we expect from them which includes providing us with enough information concerning our opponents and other things like that.
“On our part, they equally told us what they expect as regards getting result. So we are on the same page.
On the pattern of play he intends to adopt for the Super Eagles, Oliseh whose last job as coach was with a Belgian third division club refused to disclose a particular playing pattern but added that his style would depend on the quality of his team’s opponents.
