The Nigeria Football Federation would pay the remaining two years and four months of Sunday Oliseh’s contract if the governing body is found guilty of violation, Completesportsnigeria.com has been informed.
Oliseh resigned from his position as Super Eagles coach last week, eight months into his three-year contract. The former Nigeria captain cited contract breaches and a lack of support from the NFF as parts of his reasons for quitting.
While the NFF claim they have paid Oliseh all his entitlements, he insists he has not received any payment.
Oliseh is therefore seeking redress in court for the false allegations that he was paid the sum of N20 million, being salaries for three months (December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016) and half-year rent for July-December 2015 before he resigned on the 25th of February.
He is also going to court because he feels his reputation has been deliberately damaged.
“The case is in court and if the NFF are found guilty, they will pay the remainder of Oliseh’s contract,” Completespprtsnigeria.com’s source revealed.
Oliseh’s salary was N5million a month, meaning the compensation package would work out at N140m if the full amount were to be paid.
Information gathered from the Oliseh camp reveals that his assistant Jean Francois Loscuito will also be paid as well on account of violation.
“The case is in court and if they are found guilty, they will pay the remainder of his contract,” the source revealed.
Oliseh resigned as coach of the Super Eagles one month to the all important double header game against the Pharaohs of Egypt in Kaduna and in Alexandria later this month.
Samson Siasia has taken temporary charge of the Super Eagles.
