Former Super Eagles’ coach, Sunday Oliseh has been appointed as a member of the Federation of International Football Association’s (FIFA) technical study group (TSG).

This will make it the second time Oliseh would be appointed to TSG.

“Honoured to be appointed into the “new look” FIFA Technical Department. Next mission; The 2016 Rio Olympics Football.” Oliseh said on his verified Twitter account.

Currently headed by an ex-Swiss international, Jean-Paul Brigger, the TSG’s priority is to observe teams in matches and training sessions and collect information, reports of which are made available to FIFA member associations afterwards as a development tool.

Though Oliseh did not reveal the details of his appointment, his first task as a member of TSG would be at the 2016 Rio Olympics football events.

    Congratulations. You are good at theory , say in that area for now. If you want to diversify to coaching, start small and build competence and capacity to manage highly talented youths through practice.

    He was not sacked, but he discovered that he is not good at practical aspect, so let him go to FIFA and theoririze them

  • WhichWayNigeria(WWN)

    He is at the very last line, thank God, we got rid of him, if he likes he can become President of FIFA, he failed as a coach, that is pure and simple

  • FIFA is the greatest enemy of Nigeria by appointing Oliseh at a time his case is been considered for court action This is done to undermine NFF and Nigeria government .I will advise NFF to go ahead with litigation of Ex Coach Sunday Oliseh from where ever the FIFA might have put him to hide from the hands of the law of our land Nigerians should know something that he had been briefed about the position before he resigned couple with temper tantrum with foolish You Tube insulting messages to our country NFF should forge ahead to sue him and wait for the intervention of FIFA .on the matter.NFF are you a toothless bull dog that can only bark but can not bite ?.

    • Izedomi Ohirein

      Corrupt & inept NFF leadership who did not pay Olise’s 3mths salaries is the enemy of Nigeria.

    Congrats!!! Oliseh…You are at the right place. This is also a vindication from all the accusations and lies hurled at you when you left NFF and their propaganda. Continue to climb, bro! Personally, i am so proud of you.
