Oliseh Thrilled With Football Development Roadmap Role

Oliseh Thrilled With Football Development Roadmap Role

Former Super Eagles coach and captain Sunday Oliseh is thrilled with the new opportunity given him by the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development to serve Nigerian football again.

Oliseh was last week named in a 17-man committee constituted by the Ministry on the directives of President Muhammadu Buhari for a ten year developmental roadmap for Nigerian football.


President Buhari had informed a delegation from FIFA led by its President Gianni Infantino when they visited him in Abuja last week that the committee is reflective of the government’s drive to continue to provide a conducive  environment for the growth of the game in Nigeria.

In a post on one of his social media networking platforms, Oliseh wrote about how pleased he is to be part of such an important assignment.

“Pleased to confirm that I have accepted the gracious invitation by our Fatherland’s President  Buhari’s charge, in the company of 16 top compatriots, via our Sports Ministry, to produce a Ten-Year football development masterplan for dear Nigeria. Honoured to serve Nigeria once again.”

Sunday Oliseh, an Olympic gold medallist and Africa Cup of Nations winner played for the Super Eagles between 1993 and 2002.

Na sentiments go kill us for this country otherwise I see no reason why u should be included in the board going by your bad man management skills and track record

      I wonder how many Nigerians reason. First, not all former Nigeria soccer players will go back to coaching and does not mean they can’t have opinions. We have limited clubs and as such its impossible for all players to be coaches regardless of the country. Second, Oliseh is in his 50s. He doesn’t have to work if he managed his money well. He might have investments and doesn’t require him to work in his life again. Pray for God’s blessing that you do not have to work for people again.

    He who fights and runs away, lives to fight another day.
    He came, he saw, he ran away.
    Now, he is back again.
