President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick has said he is in constant touch with doctors treating ailing Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh.
Speaking in Lagos yesterday on Channels Television programme, Sports This Morning, the NFF boss said, “Oliseh is getting better. He is human and anybody can break down any time.”

Pinnick assured that the coach would soon return to his duty post as he has shown a lot of passion for the job.

“I speak directly with the doctors and we are confident he will be back soon as he is still undergoing therapy. All he needs is a good rest,” Pinnick said. Oliseh has been away for treatment in Belgium since leading the home Eagles to a 2-0 win over Chad in Port Harcourt in CHAN qualifier.

He couldn’t lead the team to N’Djamena for the second leg as he was flown to Belgium for treatment.  From all indications, Oliseh could be in the dugout when the Super Eagles face Niger at the 2016 African Nations Championship on January 18. NFF supremo Amaju Pinnick expects Sunday Oliseh to get well before then.

The Super Eagles have started preparations for the tournament in Rwanda, with the team expected to jet out to South Africa tomorrow for a training camp in the coming days without Oliseh.
