Assistant Coaches of the Super Eagles have come out to deny a newspaper report that they have been working without contracts.
Coaches Jean Francoise Luscuito and Salisu Yusuf were at the NFF Secretariat on Tuesday to express anger at the story that insinuated that the coaches have been working without contracts, and therefore with low morale.
“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,” Coach Salisu Yusuf said on behalf of Luscuito and goalkeepers’ trainer Alloy Agu.
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 Super Eagles B’s 2016 African Nations Championship qualifying fixture against Burkina Faso, coming up next month.
