Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has reportedly agreed to pay Ex Super Eagles international Tijani Babangida his salary, after insisting that his former Ajax team-mate must remain in his backroom staff.
Tijani Babangida was sacked as Oliseh’s personal assistant by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) without any reason last week. The ex-international, who was supposed to be on N600,000 per month contract, had not been paid since July 2015.
Oliseh told NFF bosses that in his contract he is entitled to appoint two members of staff, independent of the NFF, so the football body don’t have the power to sack his P.A unless they sack him or terminate his contract..
“He has maintained he will decide who he works with and that is why Babangida will return to the Eagles camp when it reopens for the AFCON qualifiers against Egypt next month,” an official informed AfricanFootball on Monday. “He has been his close and trusted confidant right from their playing days and he counts on him a great deal.”
