Former coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Sunday Oliseh has been labelled arrogant and proud by respected Dutch publication Limburger.nl.
Patrick Delait reports Oliseh’s behaviour has already claimed some back room staff at the club, with captain Ferry de Regt also said to be on his way out after a bust up with the former Ajax, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund player.
According to Delait assistant coach of the team Tini Ruijs left the club three months after Oliseh’s appointment citing personal reasons, but some club sources confirmed Oliseh insulted his then assistant in front of the players which lead to his resignation.
Team doctor Marco Lemmens and goalkeeping coach Patrick Creemers have also had clashes with Oliseh over his autocratic style when it comes to handling issues as it concerns the team.
Simply put Olishe’s pride, arrogance and authoritarian behaviour has created a seed of discord in the team, which if not checked could destroy the team in the long run, despite how well Oliseh has performed since taking over as coach of the team.
Known for his quick temper during his playing days, it appears the issue is still very much in his ways after his playing days judging by the way his managerial career has gone since he went into coaching.
He stayed only one season at Verviers after a disagreement with the men at the helm, also his stint as coach of Nigeria only lasted eight months with the highlight being his fall out with captain of the team Vincent Enyeama and later NFF president Amaju Pinnick.
