Super Eagles assistant coach under outgone chief coach, Sunday Oliseh, Jean Francois Loscuito has backed to the decision of his national team boss to resign from his job.
Loscuito spoke exclusively to Completesportsnigeria.com Friday morning on the latest development after Oliseh accused the Nigeria Football Federation of contract violation and lack of support to the coaching crew.
"Regarding the resignation of Sunday Oliseh, I learned about it very late at night. I understand his reasons for the resignation," Loscuito told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"To coach a national team, you need a conducive environment and the support of the Federation or Association as the case may be. As for me, only my health account yet.
"My health is not very good. I caught the infection in the ear. My fever returned for a few days and I have no money to buy medicine.
"The NFF officials are all aware of my health deteriorating since 17 February (2016).
"But by the grace of God it will go, I remain very confident. I was excited to get the Super Eagles assistant coaching job, but we desired the corporation and support of our employers. No problem, I shall be well again.
"Kindly excuse me now please because I am lying down at the moment and I am not very fit. I shall speak with you soon," Loscuito pleaded with Completesportsnigeria.com politely.
The technical committee of the Nigeria Football Federation will now be preoccupied with the task of hiring a new coach before the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Egypt.
