Former Super Eagles captain, Sunday Oliseh has become the first Nigerian to be appointed by FIFA into its technical study group.
Oliseh made this known on his personal facebook page.
He wrote, “It is with Great Honour that I share with you my appointment by the world’s Football governing body F.I.F.A as a member of its Technical Study Group amongst other functions.”
The former Ajax and Reggiana midfielder added, “I am flattered to be a part of this football family and I believe that this is a blessed period not only for me personally but for my beloved Nation, Nigeria!”
Oliseh has taken to coaching since he hung up his boots and has a UEFA B license to show for his efforts.
He showed class, mastery and dexterity as a pundit on South African channel, SuperSports during the African Cup of Nations in January.
He’s been linked to the Super Eagles’ managers job and is believed to be running for the vacant Technical Director job at the Nigeria Football Federation.
