Former captain Oliseh presented as Nigeria coach


Sunday Oliseh has been presented as the new coach of the Nigeria national football team.

The 40-year-old has signed a three-year deal to coach the Super Eagles with whom he won 63 caps as a player and helped to the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations title and Olympic gold in 1996.

He was also captain of the national side and at club level played had stints with Borussia Dortmund, Ajax and Juventus.

He takes over the reins from Stephen Keshi, who was sacked at the start of July following a poor run of results which led to the failure to qualify to defend their 2013 Nations Cup title this year.
