Sports Minister says Keshi remains Super Eagles’ Coach

Keshi’s had issues with the Nigeria Football Federation.

The Minister of Sports, Bolaji Abdullahi, on Tuesday confirmed that Stephen Keshi remains the coach of the Super Eagles.

The minister told journalists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja, that “the coach never tendered a formal resignation letter as broadcast by Nigerians.”

“We thank God almighty that we are part of this process. The issue of Keshi’s resignation was blown out of proportion.

“Although there were issues, I think things were not properly managed as they should be managed but thank God I was on ground to manage the issues,” he said.

Keshi told journalists that although he had issues with the NFA, they have been resolved.

“Well, there were issues to make things better in the team and all around our football sector in the country.

“But yesterday, I spent about four to five hours with the minister to sort things out and how to move the team forward,” he said.
