The Super Eagles coach was filmed receiving a sum of money to aid players’ selection to the national team

Nigeria coach Salisu Yusuf has been exposed to have received $1000 cash from undercovers to influence his team selection.

Salisu who has been the Gernot Rohr's assistant since 2016, led the Super Eagles to a second place finish at the 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations in Ghana and at the African Nations Championship in Morocco in February.

However, the revelation did not come as a surprise to Nigerians who described as the act ‘DNA of the country’s football’ while some were disappointed by the action from a high-ranking local coach.
