But while speaking with BBC Africa, Sunday Oliseh stated clearly that he wants to continue his coaching career in Belgium because of his family.

"The desire to work in Belgium is a personal one because I would love to be close to my family.
"Being around my family is a top priority, but professionally if something does come up abroad it would be something that I would consider.
"A consideration with a club abroad that permits for conversation about splitting time between Belgium and my work base is quite welcome."

Despite writing his name in gold while playing football, Sunday Oliseh has not been able to replicate such feat into his coaching career.

Oliseh was in charge of the Super Eagles from 2015-2016 before he tendered his resignation letter to the Nigerian Football Federation.
