‘Pay me while I’m alive’ – Sunday Oliseh, NFF in Twitter War Over Unpaid Salaries

[contextly_auto_sidebar]

Former Nigeria handler Sunday Oliseh is expecting the Nigeria Football Federation to pay him and Francois Loscuito their outstanding debts without litigation.

The former Super Eagles captain resigned as coach of the country’s senior national team on February 26, 2016 over unpaid wages plus series of battle with the NFF, media and fans owing to Nigeria’s early exit from the African National Championship.

Oliseh revealed on Twitter that the Amaju Pinnick led board has disregarded letters from his assistant’s [Loscuito] lawyer and fears the Court of Arbitration for Sports could clamp down heavily on the country.

“Hope the NFF will pay coach Losciuto & myself the huge amounts they still owe us without litigation whilst we are alive! Pray they listen!,” he tweeted.

“For 5 months, Losciuto’s lawyers’ letters to D NFF have been ignored. Should CAS suspend Nigeria it is not his fault.B4 they lie 2 you again!”

However, the NFF has dismissed claims that they are owing Oliseh any outstanding debt via their Twitter handle.

The NFF can confirm it is not owing former @NGSuperEagles coach Sunday Oliseh, any money whatsoever
