Following claims by Sunday Oliseh that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), forced players on him, NFF has come out to deny such claims.

Former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, accused the Technical and Development Committee, saying they imposed players on him to which the chairman of the committee, Barrister Chris Green, has confirmed to be false allegations.

Barrister Green, while speaking with NFF.com said:

I can vouch for Felix Anyansi Agwu who was chairman of the committee before me, that he is not that type of person.

I was made chairman on January on 16 and travelled to Rwanda on January 17, when the team for the CHAN had been composed.

The Super Eagles have not played any match since CHAN, so when did we have time to try and impose players on him?

We are not in anyway moved by his vituperations. He claims we did not provide him information with regards to Egypt, but how come we have been able to provide Siasia with the same? He should respect himself and move on.

He went further revealing his disappointment on the former coach saying he was shocked on how he behaved.

We welcome Oliseh with so much warmth and so much regard for his person.

It is sad he has failed to reciprocate, even at departure. He is simply full of too much talk.

He should stop leapfrogging into unfamiliar territories, such as his mention of capacity- building programme. That programme was fully sponsored by corporate bodies and was never at anyone’s expense benefits.

Sunday Oliseh, resigned as the head coach of the Nigerian football team, Super Eagle.
