Former Nigeria International goalkeeper Emmanuel Babayaro has disapproved of Sunday Oliseh as coach of the Super Eagles saying that the coach knows little of what he is doing to help the team after the 2-0 loss to DR Congo in a friendly on Thursday.

The elder brother to the well renowned Celestine Babayaro blamed Oliseh for his selections during the game and opined that that was the reason for the loss.


“Oliseh is confused,his starting lineup is proof that right now he doesn’t know what he’s doing” Babayaro told News24.

“A coach, who has a central defender like Efe Ambrose and chooses to play Leon Balogun a right back as a central defender is confused.

“Shehu Abdullahi didn’t do badly as a right back but still Ambrose is in the team and from that same spot he was untouchable in the team for four years,why is he on the bench?”

Sunday Oliseh has managed 3 matches as coach of the Eagles with 1 win, a draw and a loss. The Super Eagles are set to play another friendly against Cameroon in Brussels on Sunday..
