...it's all about being your pal

I nurse no grudge against coach Sunday Oliseh, says Emmanuel Emenike

Al Ain of UAE striker Emmanuel Emenike has said that his decision to quit international football had nothing to do with coach Sunday Oliseh.

"I have absolutely nothing against the coach.

"As for me, I still remain loyal to coach Sunday Oliseh and I want to believe he understands my decision.

"My decision has nothing to do with the coach, who is a brave man, a technically sound person, my decision has nothing to go against his vision for the Super Eagles," said Emenike, 28, who has gone more than two years without scoring a goal for Nigeria.   

The 2013 AFCON top scorer has equally thrown his weight behind the Eagles to qualify for both the 2017 AFCON and 2018 World Cup.

It will be recalled that only a few weeks ago, Emenike announced he will no longer be available for selection by Nigeria. His decision puts him on the same spot with Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, who has also announced his retirement from international football.
