After just seven months on the job, Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh has resigned from his post, claiming “contract violations, lack of support, and unpaid wages,” NBC Sports reports
Oliseh has had a rocky relationship with his employer over the past few months. According to reports in Africa, the 41-year-old found out about his country’s attempts to replace him with now-Morrocco manager Herve Renard. Days ago, his top assistant Tijani Babangida was fired despite his pleas. Oliseh has also complained of unpaid wages, which now reportedly sit at four months.
Oliseh also claimed that a lack of funds has hindered his ability to execute his job, including an inability to watch Nigerian players who play overseas. According to AfricanFootball.com, Oliseh’s resignation letter read, “Due to your contractual violations, the interest of the nation necessitates that I tender my resignation and recourse to the termination of our working agreement.” The former Nigerian international also claimed that housing in the Nigerian capital of Abuja was promised to him but never provided.
