The disciplinary committee of the Nigeria Football Federation has said that the body will further probe Stephen Keshi’s coaching job application to the Ivorian FA.
Keshi and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama were summoned to appear before the NFF’s disciplinary panel Tuesday.
The federation accused Keshi of applying for job as coach of Ivory Coast. It accused Enyeama of insubordination.
Keshi, who appeared before the committee Tuesday, denied applying for the job, while goalkeeper Enyeama boycotted the meeting.
Speaking to the media after a long meeting at the Headquarters of the NFF in Abuja, the chairman of the committee and NFF Executive board member, Chris Green, said they will investigate further by reaching out to the Ivorians to know whether Keshi applied for the vacant post.
“The committee has made some recommendations to the Executive board and we cannot disclose them to the Press right now. On Keshi’s part, we will investigate the issue, and take it further by going to Ivory Coast to get to the roots of the matter,” Green said.
Stephen Keshi’s agent, Emmanuel Adoo, had earlier told PREMIUM TIMES that his client did not apply for the job while some online documents that surfaced revealed Keshi’s Agent submitted an application to the Ivorian FA on June 11.
Chris Green also said the committee has also made recommendations to the board concerning goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama who failed to turn up.
