Ex-internationals abroad upset with Oliseh, blame Pinnick

Nigerian ex-internationals living abroad have joined the floodgate of condemnation against Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh for his outburst against Nigerians on YouTube. They, however, blamed the President of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick who practically handed him the job on a platter of gold.

Speaking from his base in Holland where he claimed to he was speaking on-behalf of his former colleagues who are scattered all over Europe and America, Chike Arisa condemned Oliseh for pouring venom on Nigerians because they were criticising him.

“We’re disappointed that a man who has benefited more from Nigeria will turn around to insult them. He knows that criticism is part of the game. And successful coaches had lived with criticisms to achieve results. We’re more disappointed because he did not merit the job and should have shown humility instead of exposing himself,” Arisa said on our hotline.

He however blamed Pinnick “for the rubbish” because he gave “a top job to a greenhorn who has not coached a club not to talk of handling the revered former African champions, the Super Eagles of Nigeria”.
