The Nigeria Football Federation has reinstated Coach Salisu Yusuf to his previous position as Assistant Coach of the Super Eagles.
His reinstatement was approved by the executive committee and will take effect from 1st of November, 2021.
Yusuf has also been reinstated as the Head Coach of the Super Eagles B team according to a press statement by the NFF spokesperson, Ademola Olajire, on Thursday.
The statement quoted the General Secretary of the NFF, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, as saying, “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.”
Salisu was caught on camera in August 2018 accepting cash from men who posed as football agents to select two players for his Morocco 2018 African Nations Championship squad.
Salisu was ordered to pay fine and later suspended for a year which ended in 2019.
