Sunday Oliseh’s job was not offered on a platter of gold, it came with conditions, and one of the condition is that, he will work with a foreigner as assistant.
So the hunt for a technical assistant was initiated and after much search and consideration, the result is, Belgian born Jean Francois Losciuto.
The new assistant coach of the Super Eagles holds a UEFA license and this is not the first time both men have worked together.
Loscuito was Oliseh’s assistant during his time as coach of RCS Verviers in Belgium.
The Belgian is also not a stranger to Africa having coached Anges de Notsè FC of Togo.
He also managed Wegnez and RFC Liege in Togo.
He then moved on to coach the Nyanza-based Rayon Sport in Rwanda before finally settling at Burkina Faso’s ASFA Yennenga where they became champions.
According to the NFF Oliseh will come with a Foreign Technical Assistant, whose job description will centre around development programmes, and who will work with Clubs’ Youth Teams and certified Academies towards developing the game from the grassroots.
