Okocha has spoken in defence of Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh following his team’s recent ouster at the ongoing Championship of African Nations (CHAN).
In an interview with NAN, Okocha disclosed that CHAN shouldn’t be used to measure Oliseh’s credibility as a coach. ‘For Sunday Oliseh, he is my friend, he is my colleague; I think he has got all it takes to get us back on track.
We don’t need to use the CHAN to judge him, we just need to encourage him, support him and let him do his thing,’ the former Super Eagles captain said.
He spoke further, ‘Hopefully, he is the right person to take us to where we want to be.’ Nigeria crashed of the competition after losing by a lone goal to Guinea.
