Gernot Rohr Replacement Now Reportedly Ready

Sunday Oliseh has come out to express his readiness to take over from Gernot Rohr and become the next Super Eagles of Nigeria coach.

The 1996 Olympic gold medalist has been without a job since 2018 and left the Senior National team in 2016 over allegations of problems with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) leadership and claims he was being ‘bewitched’

Oliseh who played for Dutch side, Ajax between 1997 and 1999, debunked reports that he left the job of the senior national team due to voodoo.

“My country is my country, nobody can take it from me. You can make any comment you want to make, but I am first [a] Nigerian before anything else,” the 46-year-old said while featuring on Channels Sports on Sunday, June 27.

“So, if my country really needs me to help out and they ask me to come and do it, I will do it.

“But I will not do it if I am giving the best of my knowledge for my country to work and somebody is just taking it ‘yes or no’ and then eventually we all fail,” Oliseh, a 1994 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winner, explained.
