Super Eagles interim coach, Salisu Yusuf has reiterated his desire to lead the team on a permanent basis.
According to the former El-Kanemi and Ranchers Bees midfielder, he has paid his dues and deserves to be given the top job permanently.
The 54-year-old further said he is done being an assistant coach, as he has previously assisted late Stephen Keshi, Sunday Oliseh and Samson Siasia in the Super Eagles.
This is coming on the heels of reports that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF is in talks with a Serbian coach to lead the Super Eagles.
“I am through with assisting any coach because I believe I can do the job now after assisting Keshi, Oliseh and Siasia,” said Yusuf.
“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.”
Yusuf, last month, led the Eagles to back-to-back victories against Mali and Luxembourg.
