NPFL club Enugu Rangers have given coach Salisu Yusuf a two-year contract after he was refused a fresh deal by the Super Eagles.
According to SCORENigeria, the new deal includes an official house and car.
Thus, the deal has effectively ended Yusuf’s time with the Super Eagles.
Last season, the former Kano Pillars coach, reportedly on secondment from the NFF, led Rangers up the standings in the NPFL after a difficult start.
It was further gathered that the ex Enyimba coach, who has served out a ban for receiving cash from undercover journalists three years ago, did not get a new deal when his boss, Gernot Rohr, got before the 2018 World Cup.
In Yusuf’s absence, the Super Eagles have struggled to impress so much so that their qualification for the AFCON in 2022 has been delayed after they failed to beat lowly-ranked Sierra Leone home and away.
Yusuf, who led the home-based Eagles to reach the final of the 2018 CHAN in Morocco, has previously handled Lobi Stars, FC Taraba United and El Kanemi Warriors in the NPFL.
