Former Nigerian international, Segun Odegbami said it was abnormal for former Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh to resign his job.

It is not normal in football, he said.

Odegbami, an assistant captain of the Green Eagles in 1980 when Nigeria won the African Nations Cup, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday that quitting the coaching job was improper.

“I don’t know the way forward now; the only thing is that it is not normal for anybody, particularly a Nigerian to behave in such a way.

“For a coach to just wake up and walk away from his job? A job that pays him between N5 and N7 million every month is not
normal. There is more to it than meet the eye; I hope that one day we will be able to have the truth of the matter about what transpired between Oliseh and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

“There could be a reason behind his abandoning his job because it is not in the culture of coaches to resign their job, there is more to it than meet the eye,’’ he said.
