Shuaibu Amodu not in for the money

30 June 2015, 16:41

Lagos - New Nigerian Football Federation technical director Shuaibu Amodu insists he took up the role to help further football in the country, and not for the $5,000 salary.

The former Super Eagles coach was appointed to the position earlier this year, but certain sections of the Nigerian football fraternity claim greed is the main factor in his decision to take up the post.

However, Amodu insists that is not the case, telling completesportsnigeria.com: "I am not after the $5,000 that was initially proposed to me as monthly salary but on how to take the game to the next level.

"I am here to work for the development of Nigeria football. My target will be to work for the progress of Nigeria football vis-a-vis all the national teams from Under-17 to Super Eagles.

"Whatever input I can give directly or indirectly for technical support we will that will bring the best for the coaches to perform without stress."
