The assistant of former Super Eagles player and coach Sunday Oliseh dragged the NFF to court over his claims for compensation after Oliseh resigned from the Eagle’s job in 2016.
NFF President Amaju Pinnick made this known during an interview with Elegbete TV.
“When Sunday Oliseh resigned, his assistant he brought to work with him wrote to us to pay him compensation and we told him we didn’t sack him neither did we employ him in the first place,” Pinnick said.
“He sued us in a Belgium court and won the case and FIFA deducted about $300,000 from our account.”
Pinnick said this while talking about the complications of firing a coach.
