I will continue as Nigeria’s coach if contract is extended – Keshi

Coach Stephen Keshi

Keshi says he has offers from countries like South Africa.

The Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, on Friday said he will continue coaching the Super Eagles if his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is extended.

Keshi told journalists in Abuja that he would love to finish what he started with the team if given the opportunity.

“Although I have not spoken with the NFF yet, I am out of contract now and I need to move ahead.

“I have spent two and a half years in Nigeria and I love Nigeria, it is my country and the national team is in my blood.

“If I meet with the NFF and we agree to the conditions in a new contract, there is no problem.

“There are many countries like South Africa that are seeking my service; but I will give priority to Nigeria if we agree because I will love to finish what I started if everything goes on well.

Keshi said if his contract is not extended, he will go elsewhere for the experience.

He expressed optimism that the Super Eagles would be a team to reckon with in few years to come if the players are kept intact.

“There is a lot of potential in the team because they are players, who, in the next three to four years, Nigerians should be proud of.

“But that is if we continue with this group of players with some additional ones”, Keshi said.
