NFF lifts Super Eagles coach ban

The Nigeria Football Federation has lifted the one-year ban on Super Eagles coach, Salisu Yusuf.

The football governing body, in a statement noted that Yusuf has  fully served the suspension clamped on him last year.
The Federation thanked Coach Imama Amapakabo for his sterling efforts while in charge of the U23 National Team in the absence of the suspended Yusuf, and for eventually seeing to the team’s qualification for the U23 AFCON.

Last year, Salisu was found guilty of collecting an amount of money reported to be around $1000 and was sanctioned by the NFF Ethics Committee with a fine of $5000 and a one-year ban from football-related activities.
The former Enyimba and Kano Pillars coach was caught on camera receiving money to influence his team selection for the 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations in Ghana.
It remains to be seen if Yusuf will guide Nigeria to the 2019 Wafu Cup of Nations in Senegal which is billed to start from September 28.
