NFF GIVEN WARNING TO PAY UP DEBTS OR FACE BAN BY OLISEH

Former coach of the Super Eagles Sunday Oliseh has warned that if the Nigeria Football Federation don’t clear the outstanding amount of salaries he is being owed alongside his assistants, the country could be banned by CAS.

The former Super Eagles captain resigned his role as coach of the Nigeria senior national team early this year February 26 precisely and despite claims to the contrary by the NFF, the 41 year old insist him alongside his assistant are been owed some huge amounts of money by the NFF

Oliseh gave the warning on his twitter handle hours after making a cheeky dig at the NFF over their open admittance that they were owing late Super Eagles coach Amodu Shuaibu who passed on last month.

“Hope the NFF will pay coach Losciuto & myself the huge amounts they still owe us without litigation whilst we are alive! Pray they listen!” He posted.

Hours later he went on the attack posting another message warning the NFF not to treat with levity the letters written to them by lawyers of his assistant Jean Francois Losciuto.

His post suggest Losciuto has dragged the NFF to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) after the NFF failed to reply to the series of letters sent to them by his lawyers.

“For 5 months, Losciuto’s lawyers letters to the NFF have been ignored. Should CAS suspend Nigeria it is not his fault. Before they lie to you again!” He posted.
