Reds boss, Beard, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have signed Asisat as she is one of the world’s top young footballers. Asisat proved in the U20 World Cup what a top-class talent she is and this signing is a big coup for us.

“The Women’s Super League continues to improve year after year, so it is vital that we strengthen our squad following last season’s successful title defence. This signing is definitely one that the supporters can be extremely excited about.”

Sunday Oliseh Fires Back at Obi Mikel, Calls Him “Kid” Over Coaching Jibe

Published

on

Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has responded to Obi Mikel’s criticism of his coaching abilities, calling the former captain a “kid” who needs help.

 

Oliseh, who coached the team from 2015 to 2016, highlighted his achievements, including winning the Best Manager of the Season award in the Jupiler League and leading Fortuna Duesseldorf to promotion from the second division.

 

He expressed his willingness to help Mikel, whom he considers a youngster, noting that achieving legend status requires more than just talking on a podcast.

 

Oliseh’s response comes after Mikel questioned his coaching expertise on a recent podcast, sparking a war of words between the two former teammates.

“I think the kid (Mikel) needs help, to be honest. There’s something I’ve not really shown much, I won the best coach for the first period of the Jupiler League, which is in the Dutch league”, Sunday Oliseh said.

 

“That was not voted by the press, that was voted by the players and the coaches of the league.

 

“I’m the only, and the first coloured man from Sub-Saharan Africa to ever win this title with a club like Fortuna Duesseldorf, who had very average players who were able to qualify from the second division from last position to the first division, where they still are now.

 

“I don’t need to justify myself being a good coach or anything to the kid. I call him (Mikel) a kid because my son is 27 years old.

 

“When he made this statement, I heard about it, but I couldn’t go on television and start arguing with someone like him. It’s degrading as a coach, you don’t go into the media and start arguing with your player.

 

“But I would like to help the boy because I think he needs some help. You cannot become a legend with your mouth.

 

“You cannot achieve what you were not able to achieve on the pitch outside the pitch by talking on a podcast.”
