Coach Salisu Yusuf will return to Super Eagles after his ban NFF President Amaju Pinnick has revealed the Super Eagles will take back Salisu Yusuf as coach after he has served a year’s ban for accepting cash from undercover journalists posing as football agents.
Yusuf, 56, was caught on camera accepting the cash, which is against both NFF and FIFA ethics, and was suspended for a year based on the recommendation of the ethics committee headed by Nuhu Ribadu.
“He will take him back after his ban,” Pinnick told the BBC in an interview.
“He has a contract with us for five years.
“Punishment is not meant to chase somebody away, just to reprimand you.”
Yusuf was first assistant to Gernot Rohr and headed both the CHAN Eagles and the U23s.
His position has yet to be filled.
