Salisu Yusuf, Super Eagles coach, will this week in Abuja sign a contract as Nigerian chief coach, which will pay him N5 million monthly. This is according to information obtained from an official at the glass house.

The former Kano Pillars and Enyimba coach was to have signed his contract before the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Tanzania in Uyo this weekend, but top officials of the glass house were overseas on official duties at the time.

“The NFF president has said he should be in Abuja this week to sign his contract,” an official announced.

Yusuf will, besides assisting Rohr, also be in charge of the home-based Eagles.

He was on N2 million-a-month salary when he assisted late Stephen Keshi and Sunday Oliseh.

Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, is on N18 million ($47,000) a month, which is more than thrice what Yusuf will earns.

Rohr has signed a two-year contract, which is being bankrolled by a yet-to-be-announced sponsor.

He has handpicked three personal assistants to be part of the Eagles back room staff and they were part of Saturday’s match against Tanzania.
