Oliseh says he is ready to lead Super Eagles again

Sunday Oliseh has said he is open to coach the Super Eagles a second time.

The former Super Eagles captain first handled the national team between 2015 and 2016, but it was mainly eight troubled months that ended with his shock resignation.

Oliseh blamed breaches of his contract, unpaid salaries and lack of support for the team by the NFF then led by Amaju Pinnick.

He also had a well-publicised fallout with Vincent Enyeama, which led the long-serving goalkeeper to quit international football.

The three-time African champions failed to qualify for next month’s World Cup in Qatar and were knocked out by second round of the delayed 2021 AFCON in Cameroon earlier this year.

”I will do it (handle the Super Eagles) if the person employing me has the interest of Nigeria at heart,” told Channels Television.

“My priority is to get Nigeria back to the top.”

Oliseh, 48, has been appointed to the FIFA Study Group for the 2022 World Cup.
