NFF speaks again: Salisu Yusuf is new Super Eagles Coach

This NFF? As was reported yesterday, the supposed super eagles coach announced only a few days ago spoke through his manager to debunk claims that he had agreed personal terms for the super eagles Job.

As a swift reaction to the new development, it seems the NFF has turned its back on its earlier commitment to appiont a foreign coach for the super Eagles, they released a report today saying that Yusuf assumes duty as the new head coach of the Super eagles, a job which he is to combine with his duties as the coach of the CHAN home based Eagles.

The Executive Committee instructed the Technical and Development Sub-Committee to, within the next seven days, recommend a candidate for the post of Technical Adviser for the Super Eagles.

“It noted that the refusal of Le Guen, earlier recommended by the sub-committee o accept to be given targets as well as unwillingness to live in Nigeria made his candidature unacceptable to the board.

“The committee also disapproved of Le Guen’s desire to come to the job with two assistants which will make Nigerian coaches redundant.

The committee further resolved that any candidate that will be recommended by the Technical and Development Sub-Committee must have accepted to be handed targets and must also be willing to live in Nigeria.

“In addition, such a candidate must agree to undergo other internal evaluation,’’ the report read.

Also appionted were Imama Amakapabo, who would serve as Assistant Coach and Alloy Agu as Goalkeepers’ Trainer.
