Nigeria caretaker coach, Salisu Yusuf has declared that he is ready to quit the Super Eagles job if not considered for the job on a permanent basis.
Last month, he was temporary in charge of the country’s team for two friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg last month.
The coach, who assisted Stephen Keshi, Sunday Oliseh and Samson Siasia in the Super Eagles in the past, also assisted Siasia on two other occasions – between 2010-11 with the Super Eagles and at the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup in Egypt.
Yusuf’s declaration comes against the background of rumours that the Nigeria Football Federation is reportedly in talks with three Serbian coaches in respect of the vacant Eagles top post.
“I am through with assisting any coach because I believe I can do the job now after assisting Keshi, Oliseh and Siasia,” the former El Kanemi and Ranchers Bees midfielder said.
“I have a good idea of the country’s players both at home and abroad and I believe with a group of willing experienced players and youngsters we can go on to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.”
