Whoever Oliseh picks, we want quick return to success, says Lawal

Post by israphil on Thu Aug 20, 2015 8:01 am

AS the Super Eagles prepares for next month’s Africa Cup of
Nations qualifier against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in Dar
es Salaam, one of the former internationals, who seems
unsettled by the list of players released by Coach Sunday
Oliseh, is Garba Lawal.
Reasons: Oliseh left out arguably two of the best
Nigerian players abroad, Victor Moses and Mikel
Obi, as well as upcoming prolific striker, Odion
Ighalo.
However, despite his misgiving on the omission of
the three players, Lawal says he will no longer
comment on team selection by national team
coaches.
He told The Guardian that he will now be “just a
spectator like every other Nigerian when it comes
to the issue of the state of football in Nigeria. “What will my advice do, it won’t do anything as
far as Super Eagles matter is concerned. I am not
going to criticise anybody again. When Coach
Stephen Keshi was there, some people never liked
my criticism. So, whoever that is there, as a
coach and whatever list that he releases, it’s all
well and good.”
Lawal, who played for Julius Berger FC and had
successful times at Roda JC in the Dutch
Eredivisie and Chinese side, Changsha Ginde,
said: “Sunday Oliseh is the coach, and he decides
on who he thinks should be invited to the team.
“My advice on the way forward will not achieve
anything. All what we are praying for is to see
him assemble a good team and return us to our
pride of position in Africa.’’
