The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have confirmed the return of Super Eagles coach Salisu Yusuf who was banned from football for a year for collecting bribe. 

Yusuf was found guilty of collecting bribe after he was caught on camera collecting N357, 000 ($1,000) from journalists posing as football agents who wanted him to select two players for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN).

 

The act was shown in a documentary that highlighted corruption in Ghanaian football by the BBC African Eye

 

After the video was published, the 57-year-old was given a one-year ban from football by the NFF Ethics Committee

After serving his ban, the NFF have announced the return of the former Enyimba and Kano Pillars coach. 

According to a statement from the NFF, Yusuf will now continue in his position as coach of the Super Eagles home-based side, Nigeria’s U23 side and assistant to Gernot Rohr

Coach Imama Amapakabo who had been acting in that capacity will now step aside.
