Abuja - Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi has agreed to pay the salary of his ex-assistant Valere Hounandinuou as the Nigeria Football Association experiences financial problems.
Keshi's brother and manager, Emmanuel, confirmed the development saying Keshi was easing NFF's financial woes.
"Keshi has decided to shoulder the burden of paying Valere's salary after the NFF said it was running low on funds to carry the huge wage bill of the Super Eagles," Emmanuel told MTNFootball.com on Friday morning.
He added the decision by the 'Big Boss' is to support the NFF "through this difficult time because NFF president Aminu Maigari is a good man who has been very sincere and supportive in ensuring that the Eagles succeed."
Valere, who also worked with Keshi to qualify Togo to the 2006 World Cup, was laid off by a broke NFF recently.
