Super Eagles Chief Coach Salisu Yusuf
Super Eagles Coach Salisu Yusuf has been caught on camera with a handful of cash from a fake football agents who wanted him to select two players for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN).
According to Code of ethics football officials can not accept any cash, the chief coach of the Super Eagles, Yusuf is in charge of the Super Eagles home-based side and an assistant to Gernot Rohr for the Super Eagles.
He was in charge of the Super Eagles Team B to the 2017 WAFU and 2018 CHAN where they lost in both finals.
According to the video report aired by the BBC, an investigation led by Ghanaian journalists, who posed as football agents for some players approached Yusuf in September 2017 for a conversation about players’ selection.
During the conversation, they handed the Nigerian coach $1000 and offer him more cash incentives if he selects their players for CHAN 2018 in Morocco.
“So if anything goes through and these players are able to get their contracts, you will get 15% of that contract,” one of the reporters posing as an agent told Yusuf to which he replied; “they will be in CHAN.”
The two players were eventually selected for CHAN 2018 although the investigation stated that there is no suggestion that the money given to Yusuf influenced the selection.

It is therefore a travesty to imagine that a coach that is earning 3 million naira monthly, gets first class treatment on every National assignments, will condescend so low to accept 1000 dollars bribe from some unknown persons. 

The current NFF board under Amaju Melvin Pinnick have shown their love for local coaches but unfortunate  occurence like this one will go a long way to further put a dent on the credential of the Nigerian coaches, many of whom have come under severe criticism in the past over serious allegations that bothers on their integrity 

Salisu, was accused of collecting 1000 US dollars from an unknown agent to field Kano Pillars Rabiu Ali and Osas Okoro of Rangers internatiional during the CHAN tournament and has since conceded to the allegation, claiming he collected the said money as a gift, not a bribe. 
He said when they came to discuss the proposal with him he told them there was no need as both players were key first team members.
He however claimed that he collected 1000 US dollars from the same agents afterwards as a gift, not as  bribe because the money was given after the game has been played.
