Stephen Keshi to sign new Super Eagles contract

The out-of-contract Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, is set to sign a new contract with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, the federation ha said.

Confirming the plan, an executive member of the NFF board, Emeka Inyama, also told journalists on Friday that based on the recommendations of the Technical Committee to the Federation, Keshi is to be served a new contract.

“The board has mandated the technical committee to finalise a contract for Keshi as he still remains the coach of Nigeria,” Mr. Enyama said.

Officials of the NFF said Keshi would be given a fresh contract on December.

In earlier interviews with PREMIUM TIMES on Thursday, a top NFF official and other sources within the federation, who refused to be named, said Keshi would officially take over the team next month.

“We are going to sign a new contract with Keshi, “the official said. “He has become a case to us, ‘dry fish’ and we can’t fold him, we don’t have anywhere to push him, his connections are so strong and as it is we are going to renew his contract next month.”

Keshi, who was sacked and reinstated to the team, failed to qualify Nigeria for the 2015 Cup of Nations after leading the team to win the 2013 edition of the tournament.

    This is definitely a move in the right direction, Keshi is a good coach he only need support, time and not being pushed around with nff crisis.

    Rewarding failure.

  • Deanofret

    Oh Bulshit! Good coach my ass. He is a failure, period! Why is he hanging around after his failure? He assembled the team that failed, not NFF, so he should sink with his failed team. If truly he’s that good, why can’t he go and coach one of the 5 countries he said was waiting to sign him? Why is Jonathan imposing Keshi on us? Jonathan is now ruling like a dictator because the employer (NFF) said they don’t want keshi again, but Mr. GEJ brought keshi back but MR. GEJ can’t bring back our girls.

    If the supporters of president Jonothing think that he deserves another term in office in spite of all the colossal calamity, disgrace and socio-economic hardship that he has brought unto this country and her citizens why wouldn’t Keshi be given another term?

    Mediocrity reigns supreme in our land. The man running Nigeria today got there through man know man…even though he is the least qualified to run a country…May God judge OBJ harshly for imposing mediocre on Nigerians.
