Patient Sunday Oliseh lashes out at Nigerians for their impatience

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh is upset with Nigerians over their lack of patience in waiting for results to materialise in the national football team.

Speaking to journalists on Tuesday, in Abuja, the ex soccer player explained how difficult it is to coach the national team.

He said: “Coaching Nigeria is difficult not because of the sporting aspect but because of the fact that we are very impatient. Because we went to Tanzania after two days of training and got a draw, it was as if we lost the World Cup.

We lost to DR Congo in a friendly it was as if oh!Go get the best coach in the world and let him come coach players for two days and let see if he will get the desired result.”

Oliseh however said he will gladly stomach constructive criticisms’ from fans and football pundits.

He said: “I understand criticism; some times we need it. I build up my team from my assistants’ support. Criticism is what makes you get better. If it is constructive, then we can work on it. If my players didn’t play well attack them; if I don’t do well attack me as well. have been coaching for 10 years.

Even while I was a pundit, I was already a coach. And I was part of FIFA Technical Study Group. You cannot be a good coach if you are not a good analyst because when you stand there you have to analyse how your team is doing well and what you have to change.”
