The in-coming Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has said he is comfortable to be paid the same salary N5 million (more than $21,000) a month his predecessor Stephen Keshi earned.
Oliseh is due to fly into Abuja on Tuesday evening and hours later meet with the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF technical committee headed by Felix Anyansi-Agwu.
“Oliseh is ready to earn the same pay Keshi was on. 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,” a top official said.
The NFF have confirmed Oliseh, 40, will replace Keshi and he will be handed a five-year contract.
