As many continue to give their thoughts towards the appointment of Sunday Oliseh as the new coach of the Super Eagles, former technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation Kashimawo Laloko, believes the former international lacks the experience necessary to manage the Nigerian senior national team.

Having only managed Belgian third division side, Vervietois previously, Laloko believes that Oliseh does not have the experience to manage the Super Eagles as the team continue their campaign for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

I don’t think he has the necessary experience to be Super Eagles coach. He is educated and very organised as a player, but his success will depend on how organised he is as a coach,” Laloko said.

Managing a national team is very different from coaching a club. Besides, being a good footballer and analyst does not automatically make you a fantastic coach. But one thing I can be sure of is that he will introduce a new structure in the team; Keshi never had any structure, and that was what affected the team last year.

Oliseh might have the UEFA pro licence but it is required that he has a CAF licence, that is what we have on ground as the rule.”

Laloko, who was a former Gambia coach and a CAF instructor also shared his thought on the new foreign assistant coach of the Super Eagles.

What is the experience of the Dutch coach and who is bringing him? , Laloko asked.

"The NFF should be the one to appoint his assistants, not the other way round. Many of these foreign coaches know nothing about African football."
