Quitting Eagles Job, Most Difficult Decision Of My Life–Oliseh

Former Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh has stated that quitting his job as Super Eagles coach was one of the hardest decisions he took in his entire life.
Oliseh who made this statement at an ongoing coaching clinic in Kenya said it took him a full month to make the difficult decision which would not have been avoided.
His words “Deciding to resign from the coaching job of the Super Eagles is the most difficult decision I ever took in my whole life.”
“It took me a whole month to decide it. Most of the time I was living in Belgium so I was not reachable to give comments but it got to a time I had to think of my two kids and the 21 years of marriage I have had with my wife and decided to pass the button to another person”
Meanwhile, the former defensive midfielder praised Africa as the most talented continent with players with great skills compared to the rest of the world.
According to him, African players only get their skills polished when they move to play in the European leagues.
“When I started my football career at the age of 16 in Belgium, the Europeans never taught me how to dribble the ball or pass. They only taught me how to be disciplined and what to do at the right time. They just polish what we as Africans have” he stated.
Oliseh, who was part of the Nigerian team to the 1994 African Cup of Nations had a one year stint with the Super Eagles before resigning in February this year due to the inability of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) to honour the terms of his contract.
In  his ten years as Super Eagles player, Oliseh guided Nigeria to three World Cup qualifiers, Olympic gold and African Cup of Nations glory in 1994
