Sunday Oliseh wants same salary as Stephen Keshi

keshi+n++olisehIn-coming Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has told officials he is ready to accept the same five million Naira (more than $21,000) a month salary his predecessor, Stephen Keshi, earned.

The ex-Eagles captain is due to fly into Abuja on Tuesday evening and later meet with the Nigeria Football Federation technical committee headed by Felix Anyansi-Agwu, reports.

“Oliseh is ready to earn the same pay Keshi was on,” a top official told

“This again shows he is ready to serve his fatherland and money is not what is driving him.

“This is another good sign with the decision to give him the job without much fanfare.”

The NFF has confirmed Oliseh, 40, will replace Keshi and he will be handed a five-year contract.
His backroom staff will include a Dutch assistant coach, Salisu Yusuf as well as Ike Shorunmu, who will remain as goalkeeper trainer.

His most immediate task will be a 2017 African Nations Cup qualifier in Tanzania.
