'Oliseh's Youtube video was manipulated. NFF can't continue sacking coaches!' - Sports Minister

The Nigerian Sports and Youth Minister, Barrister Solomon Dalung who intervened and stopped the NFF from sacking embattled coach Sunday Oliseh after his 'insane' video rant has blasted the NFF for their incessant sacking of coaches in the past and has warned the football body that such practices won't be tolerated in the future.

 

In the long media briefing the minister also made a 'wild' assertion that Oliseh's YouTube rant was manipulated as the video was 'fluctuating' when he was watching the video. Lol!
 
According to Goal.com
“The decision to fix matches is the direct responsibility of the NFF not on the rectangular size of my table," Dalung said in a Tuesday media briefing in his Abuja office.. 
"I can tell you that they have already had problems with the Kaduna venue because the coach wants Port Harcourt, while the federation was insisting on Kaduna.
“When I waded into it appealing to them, the coach told me that the team is playing against many negative things but when I asked the leadership of the federation, they started the whole story about the crisis with the coach.
"But I told them they were drifting too far into the issue of sacking the coach since I was not interested in listening to their stories.
“We should be able to build a country where we should celebrate somebody that did well and sympathize with him if he fails, encouraging him to do better. I told the federation that overconfidence ruined the team.
“I told the federation that they don’t need to sack the coach because he lost a game. They brought the issue of YouTube complaining that the man embarrassed Nigerians and must apologise.
"But I told them that they should not judge him based on the YouTube because technology is now so sophisticated that a man can be manipulated having an affair with a woman when it is not true.
“Yes, I agree that I am a novice as they claimed but I looked at that video and the way it was fluctuating convinced that there was an act of manipulation. This is my own judgment and I am free to hold this opinion.
“I told them if they have not heard from Oliseh directly concerning those things on YouTube, they have to hold on until I speak to Oliseh. When I spoke to him, he did not indicate any bitterness throughout the 16 minutes the discussion lasted. He rather pointed at issues we have to address.
“I know very well the circumstances with which he trained the players and even NFF know.  I told the federation that based on the discussion, we have to look at how we can make progress out of it instead of sacking Oliseh now and bringing another person we will sack again when he loses against Egypt.
“After sacking another, we will then look at how we can sack the NFF because if we sack the coaches, we will face the people that employed them since they have also failed too. It is going to be a sack game which is what we should avoid. I told them it is natural to discipline coaches but not to sack them.”
 “If I will still be here when the elections into the board of the federations will be done, I am assuring Nigerians that nobody will pick his in-law or farmers’ association chairman as a member of a board.
“Those who are contesting must show their commitment, they must show how they will guide their federation to success.
“Most of all the problems we are having in the federations are linked to this. We have federations that are existing and cannot do anything except the ministry gives them money.
“The ministry even funds the ticket for a president [of a federation] to come for meetings. At the end of the day, you will discover that the federations have been reduced to a battle ground; nothing but fighting over relevance and resources.
“A man who was a leader of a farming group in the village will now be appointed a board member in a football federation.
"Immediately he arrives on the board, he considers himself as having been appointed into a big political office where he must be paid allowances and he must be given money, he has nothing to contribute but much is going to be spent on him.

This Minister is turning into a real khaki clown. What does he mean by "fluctuating"? Who provides his internet service? Instead of making peace and castigating Oliseh for the stupid video, he is blaming the NFF. Okay, we hope he defeats Egypt next month otherwise, hen Yansh go open.

Edidiong Ekong said...

the sports minister is just a goat!!! Who manipulated the video. I am not saying Oliseh should be sacked. But as a public figure representing Nigeria and paid from taxpayer's money. You have no freaking right to go on any public media to say all the gibberish Oliseh said. There should be some level of professionalism in all you do. No matter how much he was antagonized he should have been professional about it. the first rule of PR is ignore the media as much as you can. I dont think he realizes the gravity of his role.

Buchi Jakes said...

Yes you are a novice and then should watch your utterances and actios because FIFA's hammar is ever dangling to strike once govt. Interfers in football matters. Am sure if the money meant for NFF and other sporting bodies are released to them, you wouldn't have to fund anybody's fare/ticket! This man is so full of himself.Geez!!!
