Ex Ajax and Juventus midfielder, Sunday Oliseh has said Manchester United should not be underestimated this season after holding Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in Sunday’s Premier League clash.
Nobody gave the Red Devils a chance but Liverpool needed a late strike to equalize after Marcus Rashford’s opener in the first half.
Manchester United are still in the bottom half of the league table with 10 points after nine games, seven points adrift of the Champions League qualification zone, however, Oliseh is happy with overall team performance vs the league leaders and feels they should not be written off.
His words on Twitter, “Pleased to see Rashford and Man United play at such a high level vs Liverpool. Don’t write off Man. Utd for the season after today!”
Do you believe him?
Sunday Ogochukwu Oliseh (born 14 September 1974) is a Nigerian football manager and former player. In his active playing career he played as a midfielder.
A physical yet technically gifted defensive midfielder, Oliseh played for world-famous clubs such as AFC Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus F.C..
Oliseh played 63 international matches and scored three goals for Nigeria, and played at the Football World Cups of 1994 and 1998. Oliseh also participated in the Olympic gold medal winning team of 1996. Sunday Oliseh was voted Africa’s 3rd best footballer in 1998 by CAF.
He is mostly remembered for scoring the winning goal in the group stage match against Spain in the 1998 World Cup, as Nigeria prevailed 3–2. A throw-in deep in the Spanish half was headed clear by Fernando Hierro – Oliseh ran and fired an explosive shot from 25 yards and took Spanish goalkeeper Andoni Zubizarreta completely by surprise. Despite captaining Nigeria during the 2002 African Cup of Nations, Oliseh was omitted from his country’s World Cup squad later that year for disciplinary reasons. After missing out on World Cup selection, Oliseh retired from international football in June 2002 for having led the team as they demanded unpaid allowances and dues owed to be paid.
In March 2004, Oliseh was sacked by Borussia Dortmund after head butting teammate Vahid Hashemian while on loan at VfL Bochum allegedly over racial remarks.
In January 2006, at the age of 31, Oliseh retired from professional football after playing a half season for Belgian top club K.R.C. Genk.
