Nigerians 'skeptical' as NFF set to appoint Sunday Oliseh as Super Eagles coach [Tweets]

Yesterday, BBC sport broke the news that NFF are in advanced talks with ex-super Eagles midfielder Sunday Oliseh who is set to replace Stephen Keshi who he played with during the USA '94 African cup of Nations.

Stephen Keshi was sacked few days ago after the NFF disciplinary and technical committee found that " he lacked the required commitment to achieve the Federation’s objectives as set out in the Coach’s employment contract.”

There has been a lot of drama in the NFF concerning the issue of Super Eagles coach since Keshi announced his resignation after the AFCON 2013 victory, it took the intervention of the Presidency to settle the rift, it was obvious the 'NFF and Keshi' relationship would not last long.

If the news of Sunday Oliseh's impending appointment are true, then NFF have acted fast to replace the former Togo Coach.

Super Eagles supporters have been talking about the news, most are skeptical about this new development as Sunday Oliseh has no experience of handling a National team.

The only managerial  experience the former Juventus midfielder has is coaching a Belgian lower division side Vervietois between 2008 and 2009, but he does hold the Uefa Pro Licence.

Oliseh has been working as a pundit - we could all remember him working as a pundit during the World cup on Super sport TV, he is also sport consultant and Fifa Technical committee member.

But the questions on the lips and mind of every Nigerian football lover is 'if Oliseh is the man to take our football to the next level?'

After failing to qualify for the last Nations cup, the burden of the National team is huge at the moment. Do you think Oliseh have the mental strength to build a solid team?
