Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is set to wage a fresh war against former Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh as it plans to demand the refund of what it described as five million naira paid him in lieu of his accommodation in Nigeria.
Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Barrister Chris Green, who was reacting to Oliseh’s latest YouTube allegations on how he was frustrated by the Federation, also said that the erstwhile coach would have to refund the February 2016 salary (five million naira) that should serve in lieu of his one –month notice of resignation.
This development may spark a fresh controversy as Oliseh in the latest rant yesterday claimed he never received N20million payment from NFF, saying he has documents to prove that no money was paid into his account.
Green, a member of the NFF Executive Committee, added: “We welcomed Oliseh with so much warmth and so much regard for his person. It is sad that he has failed to reciprocate, even at departure. He is simply full of too much talk.
“He should stop leapfrogging into unfamiliar territories, such as his mention of capacity–building programme. That programme was fully sponsored by corporate bodies and was never at the expense of anyone’s benefits.”
He also sneezed at Oliseh’s self-adulation in claiming that he put Nigeria first in his work. “How much he put Nigeria first in everything he did showed in the way he abandoned ship with only weeks to crucial games”. Green noted.
