Oliseh reacted to stories and speculations that his job might be on the line in case he does not win the competition.

So he said, “Let them go ahead. As long as they are ready to pay me the remaining of my three years contract, I will accept it with pleasure.”

Following his battle with the media, he said, “Well, I really have nothing to say to them. I am not serving journalists. I am serving Nigeria. Anybody who wants to write is free to write. That I can’t influence. What counts for me is my job. And most journalists never played football before. So, I can understand that they can write without really knowing the depth of it.”

Sunday Oliseh took to social media to say, “As far as I am concerned, I don’t care about negative opinions. People who say this kind of things are the people who have negative opinions. And that’s how it should be. I don’t have time reading comments on social networks. Newspapers sometimes, I read. But to be honest with you, social media comments I don’t think it’s meant for the coach to read. It’s about people sharing opinions among themselves. And that is how it is.”
