The Senegalese Football Federation has extended the contract of head coach Aliou Cisse with further two years  until 2024.

At the same time, Cisse’s Salary has also been increased from 15 million FCFA ($23000)  to 30  Million FCFA  ($46000) after tax.

The federation pays 15 million FCFA to Aliou Cissé, as a special fund in addition to the monthly 15 million FCFA paid to him by the State of Senegal.

Cisse  was appointed Senegal’s tactician in  March 2015 and led the Lions of Teranga to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final where his men lost 1-0 to eventual champions Algeria.

Senegal bounced back and won the 2021 AFCON title in January 2022, their first ever  African Championship after beating Egypt in the final on penalties  in Cameroon.

Senegal will face the Netherlands in their opening Group A game on November 21 before taking on hosts Qatar, then Ecuador at this year’s FIFA World Cup.

The African champions Senegal  will be joined by Cameroon, Tunisia, Morocco and Ghana as Africa’s representatives at the beckoning tournament that will end on December 18.
