The Super Eagles manager has taken to twitter to offer his apologies to his countrymen, numbering almost 200million, who had taken offence at his recent rant.
The Nigeria’s head coach Sunday Oliseh hit back at the “insanity” of critics in the Nigerian media with an eight-minute rant after the home based Super Eagles were eliminated in the group stages of African football tournament CHAN.
In the said outburst posted on his personal website, Oliseh defended his record, and pointed out he had lost just two of his 14 games in charge of Nigeria.
Oliseh has reportedly apologised to the Nigeria Football Federation.
However he used his Twitter account to express his regret at his actions.
“Please when I spoke of Critics I did not mean the general public of Nigeria! I would never dare refer to my beloved country men as insane!” he wrote.
“How dare I insult 170 Million people who I love and have shown me so much love? Please forgive the error of editing! God bless you all”
The former Nigerian international has given credence to the saying that “If you can’t take the heat, you have no business in the kitchen!”
