No chance for second fiddle players , Oliseh warns

Newly appointed Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has warned Nigerian players in diaspora that his Team will only accommodate players featuring regularly for their teams.
Speaking at a media presentation in Abuja on Wednesday, said he will only consider players who feature in top leagues both home and abroad.While stating that leading the national team is an honour, he noted he will be needing the support of all and sundry to take the national team to the height it ought to be.
In his words, he said, “If you are not playing in first division in anywhere in the world and in Nigeria, you cannot play for the Super Eagles henceforth. It’s a great honour to be a coach of this nation.
“First of all, I am not coming as a Messiah. I am not coming as a man who can single handedly turn Nigeria to Germany.I am coming in to do my best and give if possible 150% all the time.
The state we are now in Nigeria I think we are all not happy with. Gone are the days we have individual players who can single handedly win a match for you. But we have the potentials and that is our belief and the players must know that it’s an honour to be invited to the national team”.
