The brazen-styled Coach of the Nigerian Super Eagles reportedly still looked weak and even got woozy Thursday evening while prepping the home-based Eagles for the CHAN at check in Quagadogou. He was immediately flown to Belgium for treatment.
According to a tweet by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), via its Twitter handle, @thenff, the former Nigeria captain, became dizzy and weak after lunch yesterday, and so had to be flown abroad last night through the Port Harcourt Airport.
With this development, the Super Eagles would be without coach Oliseh when they travel later today to Burkina Faso for the second leg CHAN qualifier in Ouagadogou.
The NFF said: “Coach Sunday Oliseh has returned to Belgium to continue treatment after being advised by Eagles medics.
“He became dizzy and weak after lunch on Thursday and he travels abroad tonight (yesterday) through the Port Harcourt Airport.”
Oliseh joined his assistants after undergoing treatment in Belgium and was on the bench when the Eagles secured a 2-0 win over the Etalons of Burkina Faso in Port Harcourt last week, in their first leg African Nations Championship qualifying clash.
It was gathered that the coach “was not himself and after being examined by the Eagles’ doctor, he was advised to return to Belgium to complete his treatment.
‘Yes, he’ll not travel with the team to Ouagadogou. He’s off to Belgium on medical grounds,” camp source said last night.
VIVA NAIJA sends wishes of speedy recovery to Coach Oliseh.
