Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh will not give a time table when he will have a ready team that could be assembled within a short notice, without having to set up a camp to determine the best legs for each position. He admitted that Nigerian football is in a bad state that needs careful and concerted efforts from all to get running again. oliseh admitted that the Super Eagles have not had consistency as it regards playing personnel, so he will need time to get things right, but admitted the players have shown improvements from the first time he trained with them. “I can’t really say when we will have a formidable team,” Oliseh said.
“We started training on Monday (last week) and I put my hands on my head and said ‘oh God there’s so much work to do’. “But we did a video work that Monday and when we trained on Tuesday ideas like ‘this is good’ in one day. “So they should be the ones telling you what it is but I must say the boys are very motivated and they improved in one day and I wonder what will happen when we work together in weeks.
“But then we need time because the basic problem we have as a crew is that, when you take over at a club, you have some regular players and you work around those players, maybe like seven, eight, or nine of them and you may choose to keep six and bring in three new faces. “But we are coming and starting from zero and over the last year, when you look at our players and their positions, it has always been changing and for us now, it’s not that easy and I can’t tell you right now how long it will take but we’ll give it our best shot,” Oliseh posited
