Former Nigerian football captain Sunday Oliseh resigned as a coach for national team due to several engagements.
Oliseh who is in the country to popularize the sports across the country.
Oliseh said he decide to quit coaching as the Nigerian national football team due to his engagement with the family and sickness.
While addressing journalists in Nairobi, Oliseh said that he did not fail in taking the national team where it was supposed to be but he had to take a sabbatical leave due to his family engagements.
“I was totally engaged. The first instance is when I fell sick and I was taken to Belgium for treatment and I had little time for the team and secondly, I was to take care of my marriage because my family comes first in my life. I was only married for 21 years and I had to ensure that I stay close to the family,” said Oliseh.
The coach who managed to win 12 out of 14 games with the national team Super Eagles, stays in Belgium and travelling all time was not good for him and instead had to chose between family and coaching career.
“I am a qualified coach and I knew I am able to deliver but I stay in Belgium which was hard for me, especially when I was sick. I had to do what it takes to treat myself and later live happily with my family,” added Oliseh who is in the country for various football clinics for three days.
