“They were talking with Renard about him replacing Oliseh and it was his agent who told us,” said Babangida, who was the ex-Eagles coach special assistant.The former Ajax Amsterdam flying winger also gave more graphic details of Oliseh’s frustrations when he was in charge of the Eagles.
“The agent wondered what is wrong with the NFF, but he assured him Renard won’t be coming to Nigeria.”
“It was always going to end this way because he was disappointed his contract was violated and there were many problems at the CHAN and he was not supported,” he said. “He planned to go and watch an interesting striker (Fanendo) Adi in the United States of America, but they did not approve it, claiming there is not money.
“They did not reply his emails and they kept insisting he attend the technical committee meeting in Abuja even when he had yet to compile his list of players for the Egypt matches. “It was like, If he did not show up, they will sack him again after they recommended for his sack at their first meeting.”
