Salisu Yusuf has been reinstated as assistant coach of the Nigerian national football team, and also Head Coach of the Super Eagles B team, with effect from 1 November 2021.
The reinstatement was approved by the Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation
Mohammed Sanusi – the General Secretary of the NFF – disclosed on Thursday that the re-instatement of Yusuf by the NFF Board was on the recommendation of the NFF Technical Department.
A statement from the country’s football body read: “Highly respected for his match-reading ability, calm demeanour and proficiency in talent discovery and development, Yusuf, in his playing days featured for Rancher Bees of Kaduna and El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri, among others.
“Yusuf’s return to the three-time African champions coincides with the closing stages of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifying second round phase and the commencement of preparations for the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations finals taking place in Cameroon early next year.”
The reinstatement comes three years after Salisu was caught on camera accepting cash from men who posed as football agents to select two players for his Morocco 2018 African Nations Championship squad.
He was ordered to pay a fine of $5,000 by the federation after the NFF Ethics and Fair Play Committee ruled that the coach received $1,000 from the men.
