Nigeria coach Yusuf banned, fined over payment

By

The Nigeria Football Federation on Wednesday said it had banned Super Eagles coach Salisu Yusuf for 12 months and fined him $5,000 (4,300 euros) for receiving cash from undercover journalists posing as agents. The NFF ethics and fair play committee found Yusuf guilty of accepting $1,000 after he was caught on camera being asked to select two players for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN). "He is hereby banned for the period of one year, from partaking or involvement or participation in any football-related activity, effective from the date of this decision," the NFF said.
