Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has refuted reports that there rift between him and former teammate Austin Jay Jay Okocha.

Both Oliseh and Jay Jay Okocha were teammates in the national team set-up for a long period of time but there have been reports that the two former Super Eagles captains do not see eye to eye.

Oliseh is currently the coach of the Super Eagles while Jay Jay Okocha is the Chairman of the Delta State Football Association (DFA)

It seems Oliseh is however tired of the report and was in a sarcastic mood when he was asked about it recetly. 

Yes, I hate Jay-Jay,” the former Super Eagles captain sarcastically replied. “I hate Okocha because anytime we play tennis, he beats me. We played at the weekend at Sheraton Hotel and he defeated me.

We’re the best of friends and we played Tennis at the weekend”, Oliseh emphasised.

Oliseh just released his list of invited foreign base players and there are a few surprises.

Despite meeting with Victor Moses and John Mikel Obi in London recently, Oliseh omitted them from the his list of invited players for next month's 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Tanzania.

Mikel and Moses have not been seeing regular playing time at Chelsea.
