Erstwhile Super Eagles handler, Sunday Oliseh wants the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to pay him and Francois Loscuito their outstanding debts without litigation.
The former Nigeria captain resigned as coach of the country’s senior national team on February 26, over unpaid wages cum series of battle with the NFF, media and fans owing to Nigeria’s early exit from the African Nation Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda.
Oliseh revealed on his twitter handle that the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF board has disregarded letters from his assistant’s [Loscuito] lawyer and fears the Court of Arbitration for Sports could clamp down heavily on the country.
“Hope the NFF will pay coach Losciuto & myself the huge amounts they still owe us without litigation whilst we are alive! Pray they listen!,” he tweeted.
“For 5 months, Losciuto’s lawyers’ letters to D NFF have been ignored. Should CAS suspend Nigeria it is not his fault.B4 they lie 2 you again!”
It will be recalled that the NFF after the death of its technical director, Shuaibu Amodu admitted that the late coach was being owed salaries like any other employee of the Glass House.
