Foremost Nigerian footballer, John Fashanu on Saturday insisted that the present form of the country’s football team is really not impressive.

Making this known in a chat with media practitioners during the inauguration of the pioneer Sports University located in Idumuje-Ugboko, Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta, Fashanu argued that Coach Sunday Oliseh is presently confronted with the challenge of turning the team around to make it a team to beat.

According to Fashanu, “Super Eagles have not impressed me at all lately. I will not say the appointment of Oliseh was bad, it is a challenge; he has not had that position before.

“But we have to step up because the country now is moving backwards in terms of football in FIFA rankings.

“We are at the lowest end; it has never been like that. That means somebody at the top must do something.

“People say when we gave Sunday the job, he said he is not the messiah. Only one job is harder than being a Super Eagles coach in this country and that is being the President.

“So, if you are not ready to be the messiah, you better step down because being a Supper Eagles Coach, it means you have the second hardest job in this country.

“You have to bear the responsibilities because nobody cares that you have never had that job before.”
