Oliseh reveals why he dropped Enyeama as Super Eagles captain

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh, has played down
the misunderstanding he had with goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama and
described it as normal disagreement in a family.
Oliseh also explained that he replaced Enyeama as captain of the
national team with Ahmed Musa, because the CSKA Moscow is
young and will be around for a long time.
”I want a captain who is disciplined. A leader who can motivate
other players. A player who comes to camp early. I want a young
player not a retiring player as captain. And Ahmed Musa is that
player. He is my captain,” Oliseh told Brila FM.
“When you have a new government like our honourable
president just came in, he’s picked his ministers. And you have
your philosophy and you have your way of working.
“As a coach, I have looked at the team and I have looked at Nigeria
going forward. We need a captain who will think of staying with
Nigeria for several years to come, who is regularly in the front.
Ahmed Musa did a great job for us in Tanzania under very difficult
circumstance. He is a very responsible player and he is the captain
of the team. So he is the captain of the team, there is no question
of a tussle.”
Oliseh also insisted that the mood in camp ahead of Thursday’s
friendly against DR Congo was good.
He said: ”The players have shown their desire and we are working
on stringing them together. It is unfortunate that the home-based
players are yet to be given visas but we are hopeful that they will
be here for the second match against Cameroon on Sunday.”
