Former Nigerian captain and coach Sunday Oliseh is open to managing the country's senior national team for the second time if he is given the opportunity.

The 1994 AFCON winner was appointed Super Eagles boss in 2016 but lasted about eight months before walking out of the deal after a fall out with the Nigeria Football Federation board.

While leaving his position back then, he vowed never to manage the team again under his previous working conditions.

Former Nigerian captain Oliseh said

The 46-year-old Olympic gold medal winner made his standpoint known while responding to questions on Channels Sport, he said:

“My country is my country, nobody can take it from me. You can make any comment you want to make, but I am first [a] Nigerian before anything else. So, if my country really needs me to help out and they ask me to come and do it, I will do it.”

After dumping the Super Eagles, Oliseh was appointed Fortuna Sittard manager in 2017 but parted ways with the Dutch club one year after.

Sunday Oliseh continued

“But I will not do it if I am giving the best of my knowledge for my country to work and somebody is just taking it ‘yes or no’ and then eventually we all fail."

Oliseh was part of the Super Eagles team that qualify for the FIFA World Cup in 1994 following their AFCON triumph the same year.
