In a new interview, Clemens Westerhof has blasted Sunday Oliseh, adding that he isn’t convinced he is the right man to lead the national team to the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.
Former Super Eagles coach, Clemens Westerhof who won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations title with Nigeria in Tunisia, has launched an extraordinary tirade against Oliseh after they beat Swaziland 2-0 on Friday.
He disclosed that he is not convinced coach Sunday Oliseh is the right man to lead the national team to the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.
Just after the victory in Portharcourt, Oliseh told the press he was proud of his team, and Westerhof took exception to the idea, saying it was nothing to celebrate.
“Congratulations, you beat Swaziland 2-0 in the return leg match of the preliminary round of the qualifiers. But does that really call for celebration? Yes, there are no minnows in football but who are Swaziland to hold the Super Eagles to a goalless draw?
“The Super Eagles won 2-0 in Nigeria but is it not a game the Super Eagles should be winning 6-0, 7-0 under normal circumstances? What type of football do they play in Swaziland?
“Swaziland is not the first match Super Eagles have played under Oliseh. There has not been any difference between their first game under him and the game with Swaziland.
“I’m sorry, with Oliseh, the Super Eagles may not go to the World Cup in Russia,” Westerhof declared.
