Super Eagles assistant coaches have debunked claims that they have been working without contracts.
According to the Nigeria Football Federation, Salisu Yusuf, along with Jean Francoise Lusciuto, were at the NFF Secretariat on Tuesday to voice their displeasure about the claims.
Speaking on behalf of the coaches, Yusuf said: “We have signed our contract papers, and the papers have been handed over to us a long time ago. We do not understand where the story is coming from, because we never spoke to anyone about not having valid contracts, or not having been paid salaries.”
Yusuf continued: “The head coach, Sunday Oliseh and ourselves have been working in one accord and there is no problem of motivation. Our commitment to the vision and mission of the present NFF to build a Super Eagles’ team that will re-enact the golden era of our football remains unshaken.”
The Eagles’ assistant coaches later met with NFF President Amaju Pinnick to discuss preparations for the home-based Super Eagles 2016 African Nations Championship qualifying fixture against Burkina Faso, coming up next month.
