Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh dropped a bombshell recently when asked about his former vice captain in the Super Eagles tea.
He thus laid to rest rumours that he does not see eye-to-eye with Austin Jay-Jay Okocha as he stated emphatically: “yes, I hate Jay-Jay!”
Sunday Oliseh explains why he hates Austin Jay-Jay Okocha
This was in response to a question by a journalist on how true rumours were that the pair do not see or stay in the same room.
Vanguard reports that the hall was like a graveyard when he made the shocking revelation, but he quickly looked round and added: “I hate Okocha because anytime we play Tennis, he beats me.
“We played at the weekend at Sheraton Hotel and he defeated me.”
“We’re the best of friends and we played Tennis at the weekend.”
Oliseh spoke further on the new-look Super Eagles team, saying that he was going to make the Eagles play like a team with individual talents.
According to him: “If you remember our victories in 1994 and 1996, it was based on individual talents. But we do not have such individual talents again. What we need to do is to play collectively. That is what obtains in Germany and Spain. It’s a lot of hardwork. We’re here to do our best.”
The Nigerian coach only yesterday, released a list of foreign professionals expected to joint the home-based to prosecute the September 5 Africa Nations Cup qualifying match against Tanzania in Dar es salam.
