Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh will join up with the 2016 CHAN squad later than expected as he recovers from illness.
The Eagles’ home-based group of 26 players that will do duty at the 2016 CHAN in Rwanda next month, are set to gather in Abuja on Monday, December 14, for a training camp.
But an illness to Oliseh, which also saw him miss the Eagles’ second-leg CHAN qualifier in Burkina Faso, means he will only join up with the squad when they travel to South Africa for their pre-tournament camp.
“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,” an official was quoted as saying.
Assistant coach Salisu Yusuf is expected to be in charge during Oliseh’s absence.
