Oliseh Proposes Tanzania Camp For CHAN Preparation

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has proposed Tanzania camp for Nigeria's home-based team preparatory for the 2016 Championship for African Nations in Rwanda.

Complete Sports gathered that Oliseh chose to have the team camp in Tanzania to acclimatise to the weather which is similar with that of Rwanda and to avoid distraction that comes with camping in Nigeria before and during the Christmas period.

An informed and reliable NFF source revealed that Oliseh also wants the team to open camp in Abuja on December 14 and if he gets the approval of the Glass House will leave for Dar es Salam on December 22.

Complete Sports source also informed that the Super Eagles coach has also requested to travel to Tanzania with 30 players that will be reduced to 21 before the championship in which Nigeria finshed third last time when South Africa hosted.

When Complete Sports sought for confirmation of the planned camping in Tanzania, Super Eagles media officer Toyin Ibitoye denied knowledge of such move, directing this reporter to the NFF or Oliseh.

NFF Assistant director of communications Ademola Olajire also said he does not know about any programme from Oliseh.
