“The only thing they (Liverpool) are doing currently is that they are in search of a coach that fits their philosophy and style.”

“If we (Nigeria) cannot offer our indigenous coaches opportunities to help the country’s football, then who else will?” Oliseh questioned.

“I did not apply for the Eagles job. Reports that stated so are false. I only stated that if Nigeria needed my help as a coach, I would be willing to help if the conditions are right.
