Did you know that former Super Eagles midfielder and coach Sunday Oliseh is the only Super Eagles player to have played alongside three-time FIFA World Player of the Year winner Zinedine Zidane?
Yes, he is. Before he joined Zidane at Juventus, Oliseh had won the Eredivisie with Ajax as well as the 1994 African Cup of Nations and the Olympic Gold Medal with Nigeria in 1996.
Oliseh and Zidane were teammates during the 1999/2000 season, but were unable to win any title together.
Growing up Sunday Oliseh was able to combine schooling with football, which made life after retirement a bit easy.
Oliseh was the Sporting Director of Belgian club Eupen for about a year, managed Vervietois from 2008 – 2009 before he was appointed the coach of the Super Eagles in 2015.
Born in Abavo, Delta state, Oliseh is from a football family, despite the fact that his father didn’t support his dream of playing the beautiful game at an early age.
