SKIt’s been a few hours since Stephen Keshi‘s surprising resignation as the head coach of the Super Eagles. He is currently reconsidering his decision and has released the following statement.

My attention has been drawn to reports in the media that I have resigned my appointment as the Head Coach of Super Eagles of Nigeria.
While I have had cause to express my displeasure over some issues that happened in the course of our participation in the AFCON 2013, which my team won by the grace of God, especially concerning my relationship with the Nigerian Football Federation, I have since had opportunity to discuss the various issues with all concerned. I am therefore pleased to say that I have reconsidered my position and have decided to continue with my job.
I want to thank the Honourable Minister of Sports, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, for his swift and kind intervention.

Signed

Stephen Okechukwu Keshi

12th February 2013

Let’s see how this plays out.

        fair question. but i think he also meant to make a point.
        there is an argument that he already made his point when our boys carried the cup.
        indeed, let’s see.

      Face saving from Minister and NFF. I think they should all go. They are fond of treating their people shabbily and this is the sum effect of such actions. To think they were hoping the eagles failed. #big fail for the minister and co…
