salisu-yusufInterim coach of the Super Eagles, Salisu Yusuf, has admitted he wants the role on a permanent basis.

The former Enyimba and Kano Pillars boss, took charge of Nigeria’s national team in the recent international friendly games against Mali and Luxembourg.

Both games ended in wins for the Eagles.

With the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), expected to announce a permanent coach before the 2018 World Cup qualifiers kick off in October this year, Yusuf has now thrown his hat into the ring.

“I can take responsibility at this level,” he said.

“I have been working as a coach for the past 15 years. I will work a lot harder because the responsibility is higher. It will not change my philosophy as a coach.
“I will not be surprised if I’m given the job because I have assisted three coaches (Keshi, Oliseh and Siasia). I know the job and I can do the job.

“I will use active players, playing for their clubs regularly, conditioning and match fitness will come from their clubsides. We will only discus tactics and strategy for the four days we are together before a game,” he said.

“The quality of the player cannot be compromised and if he is active, he can take responsibility

“If you are playing for your club, it will be easier for you to play for the national team.
