Former Nigeria international Emeka Ezeugo has said he was not shocked Sunday Oliseh sensationally dumped the Super Eagles after he was headhunted as a coach without giving others a chance to apply for the top post.
Ezeugo, who is currently undergoing another degree in Cybersecurity in the United States of America spoke to brila.net’s Anthony Bekederemo that Oliseh came in through the back door, hence his exit in a similar fashion.
“I saw it coming, the way he came in, no interview, no advertisement of the coaching vacancy,” he said.
“Amaju (NFF president) just went to London and all we saw was himself taking selfies with Oliseh and we were told behold a new Super Eagles coach.
“I wasn’t surprised at all (he eventually quit).”
Former Green Eagles defender Ezeugo featured for Nigeria during the 1994 World Cup finals in the USA and he’s currently away from the game of football while pursuing a degree in Cybersecurity.
He identified the many shortcomings in football in the country for the woes affecting the game locally.
“The people running the football in this country are states football association chairmen and it shouldn’t be so,” Ezeugo told brila.net.
