” I didn’t say I was not going to offer him a new contract, we are going to work with.

“We are going to take a lot of things into consideration.

“It’s like when you are building a house and you feel that the house needs to be enhanced so you put other structures for enhancement and that’s what we are going to do.

“Keshi is going to be offered a new contract.

But in the contract we are going to have certain clauses working with the Technical Study Group, working with the Technical Committee, working with the Technical Department.

“And making sure in terms of player selection, there is science of players which means fitness and so many other things.

“So, all those are the things that are going to be embedded in the contract.

“When they are embedded in the contract we are also looking at areas that will improve our performance.

“That when there is any window we will be able to send him on internship, attachment to various clubs in Europe.

“All those are things we are doing to enhance his capacity.

“You will agree with me that Keshi has won everything; he just needs to be enhanced in terms of building his capacity and that is exactly what we intend to do.”
