Former Super Eagles handler, Chief Adegboye Onigbinde, has stated that Samson Siasia is a better tactician than Sunday Oliseh.
Siasia has been appointed as the interim coach of the national team, after Oliseh resigned from the position last month.
Onigbinde has now publicly backed his appointment and claimed he has better experience and behaviour.
“I would still rate Samson Siasia better than Sunday Oliseh in terms of experience and behaviour,” he said.
He, however, called on Siasia to bring his wealth of experience to the table, with Nigeria facing a crucial double header against Egypt this month, in their quest to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
“First of all, Siasia must show the depth of his knowledge and experience as a coach. The programme he would submit to the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation will go a long way in helping him to achieve his objectives.
“That is the more reason why nobody can tell what will happen for now because as for me, I don’t know what is in the mind of Siasia. So, it is his programme that will determine the chances the Super Eagles will have against Egypt. Also I don’t know what would be the reaction of his employers when he submits the programme too.
“So, what is going to happen at the end of the day will depend on what he will put into the team between now and then. There is no magic there.
“That was the reason why I questioned the appointment of Oliseh as the chief coach of the Super Eagles when he was employed then.
“Firstly there was no track record we could trace to Oliseh as a coach. Also we could ask did Oliseh even submit a technical programme on how to tinker the team for the duration of his term as the Eagles coach to the NFF? This is a very important factor in achieving success.”
