The Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, has fined Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh $30,000 for his 'insane' outburst in which he claimed that his former colleagues and critics were "mad" to ask for his sack just because he had lost two games in 11 matches the Super Eagles have played under him.
But sources say Oliseh will consult his lawyers to contest the fine imposed on him by the football body.
On Tuesday, top NFF chiefs led by Amaju Pinnick held a meeting with the sports minister Solomon Dalung on the future of the embattled chief coach.
After Nigerians and football lovers criticized the Delta born coach for not appreciating his job by calling his critics insane, Oliseh took to twitter to address the situation.
He tweeted: "When I spoke of critics I did not mean the general public of Nigeria! I would never dare refer to my beloved country men as insane!"
"How dare I insult 170 Million people who I love and have shown me so much love. Please forgive the error of editing! God bless you all."
With Sunday Oliseh, it is from one controversy to another. Hope he can relax and do his job well.
