Not the First Time, It's Normal", Coach Salisu Yusuf Explains Swapped Super Eagles Role

May, 23 2022.

Super Eagles Assistant Coach, Salisu Yusuf has explained that he's unperturbed with the swapping of roles between himself and Finidi George in the Super Eagles technical bench set-up.


Salisu was named first assistant coach to Jose Peseiro but was later taken down to second assistant, with George Finidi taking a senior role.


Yusuf said "the swap was not the first time. The other time Amuneke came, went ahead of me, Eguaveon came sat ahead of me. So it's a normal thing".


What I believe is, we are all working for our country and not for a specific person and I believe as far as I'm able to work whenever Nigeria calls me, I'm very okay", Salisu added.


Speaking on Jose Peseiro's appointment, he said "there's a difference between the white and the black coaches and the difference is only in organization. I believe that Peseiro will come with great things and maybe all the coaches will learn so that we can move forward. I always like to learn from my colleagues, so we hope and pray that qualify Nigeria for the AFCON".


Coach Salisu Yusuf still remains coach of the CHAN team and also the U23 Eagles, and will be getting ready to jet out with the Super Eagles to the US.
