In Abuja, he told reporters that he would like to finish what he started 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.
