Nigeria: NFF May Drag Oliseh to Court of Arbitration

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), stung by the sudden resignation of coach Sunday Oliseh have asked their lawyers to study religiously his contract and come up with possible areas he breached the contract that will guide them in dragging him before FIFA and the Court of Arbitration, CAS.

Before throwing in the towel, Oliseh has just been paid the sum of N20 million, being salaries for three months (December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016) and half-year rent for July-December 2015. He was signed on in July 2015. The only money he is owed is the bonus for the World Cup qualifier against Swaziland in Port Harcourt in November 2015, which the NFF had promised to pay players and officials on resumption of camping for the matches against Egypt.

Already, officials pointed that payment of his accommodation funds and coaching the Super Eagles from Belgium as areas he breached the contract.
