Oliseh Excited After FIFA Technical Department Appointment

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh is excited by his appointment into  the Technical Department of FIFA.


Oliseh will also work at the football tournament of the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

He was part of a technical team that evaluated the Borrusia Dortmund versus Liverpool game in the Europa League quarter-finals last Thursday. He was on the trip alongside his former Eagles assistant coach, Jean Francois Loscuito.

The match between Dortmund, Oliseh's former club, and Liverpool coached by Jurgen Klopp, the former Dortmund manager, ended 1-1 at the Signal Iduna-Park Stadium.

Oliseh bared his mind on Twitter early Monday morning.

"I feel honoured to be appointed into the "new look" FIFA technical department," he wrote.

"Next mission: The 2016 Rio Olympics football tournament in Brazil. We thank God for the elevation and opportunity to represent Africa again."

The football tournament of the Rio Olympics will hold between August 3 and 20, 2016.
