World Cup: Keshi hints at quitting Super Eagles

The Head coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi, on Monday in Brasilia blamed the U.S. referee, Mark Geiger, for the outcome of the match against France. He also hinted the World Cup could be his last with the Super Eagles.

He said the referee should not have ruled off Emanuel Emenike’s 16th minute goal.

“This is the first time I will blame the referee for bad handling of a match. There is nothing I can do about that. He was the Alpha and Omega at that point in time,’’ Keshi said.

When journalists asked if he would be take the national team to Morocco for January 2015’s Africa Cup of Nations, Keshi just said his job was over.

Keshi said that he would be going to rest for about three months with his family.

“I can’t speak about any country now. I just want to be with my family.

“I am just going to have a deserved rest with my family and then decide what next to do thereafter,’’ he said.

He said his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is almost up.

“My contract is almost up. Nobody has called me for negotiation. One cannot stay where he is not wanted’’.
