The new manager of the Nigerian National Team Sunday Oliseh talked to SDNA about Ideye: "Ιdeye is one of the players that I will immidiately watch. He is in my plans and I want to see him playing for Olympiacos. His movement in Greece will be good for him and for Olympiacos. Of course this will help me enlist him to my options.
Despite the fact that Ideye didn't manage to prove what he can do at West Brom, Oliseh believes that the Nigerian striker has the tools to succeed at Olympiacos: "He is a fast striker. He is strong in the box and has the ability to score a lot of goals. This is something that I believe he can prove with Olympiacos, now that he has the chance to play in the Champions League. Premier League is a special championship with many difficulties. The level is different from the the other leagues. He did not play much in West Bromwich and this didn't help him.
