Is it Right For Salisu Yusuf To Immediately Step Down As Olympics Eagles Coach?

Nigeria failed to accumulate all 3 points on offer against Guinea this week whilst playing at home in the Under 23 Afcon qualifiers.

Qualification for this tournament, which itself serves as 2024 Olympics football qualifiers, now hangs by a thread.

Salisu Yusuf is tasked with qualifying Nigeria for this tournament but fans have remained uncomfortable about his checkered past and unconvinced about his coaching acumen.

Being embroiled and subsequently punished for bribery scandal permanently and irrevocably tarnished his reputation in the eyes of many Nigeria fans while failure to qualify for this year's Homebased Afcon tournament remains fresh in the minds of  others.

In short, Salisu Yusuf is damaged goods all round to very many Nigeria football stakeholders.

Now, Nigeria are on the brink of another failure following this week's 0:0 wishy-washy home draw against Guinea in Under 23 Afcon qualifiers. Fans are now asking: how long will we have to endure Salisu Yusuf as a national team coach?

Well, I don't think the NFF will sack him before next week's away leg to Guinea. I am praying Nigeria prevails against all odds.

If not, Salisu Yusuf's position should definitely become untenable.
