Should Keshi still Coach the Super Eagles?



Stephen Keshi - July 2014 -
Today Friday 4th July 2014, Stephen Keshi, the head coach of Super Eagles revealed that he is ready to continue coaching the national football team if his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation is extended.

If you recall, after Nigeria lost to France at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, news went viral that he resigned. But he later refuted the reports saying he only told the players that his contract had expired and he may not coach them anymore.

In Abuja, he told reporters that he would like to finish what he started if given the opportunity.
He said;

“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.

There are many countries like South Africa that are seeking my service, but I will give priority to Nigeria if we agree because I will love to finish what I started if everything goes on well.

But if not, I will like to move my train to somewhere else because it is always a good experience when you go out there and try something else.”

Keshi also said that in the next three to four years that the Super Eagles will be a force to reckon with. Do you want Keshi back? Let’s talk about it.


In other news, FIFA has ordered Nigeria to reinstate the executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) not later than Tuesday or face a ban.

A Nigerian court on Thursday sacked the NFF, and the government appointed a sole administrator for the country’s football

    I don’t want to use the word hate, but if one fails to deliver, he/she gives way for others to try. In my opinion, he failed to deliver as such, he should quit. In my opinion, the Nigerian ppl and government gave him an assignment to bring the cup to Nigerian, but he lost. If i am runing a business, i don’t want a looser in my team. Keshi is a looser big time.

    Yes! We need continuity. For those criticizing him, what was the state of affairs before Keshi?? We have such short memories. The guy has done well so far, let’s keep him on board to allow him to consolidate on the team’s achievements and long-term potential.

    …Keshi’s contract should not only be renewed, he should be paid as much as the Italian and English football coaches. He is working and instead of paying this earnest worker his wage, the senators and reps of the house are pocketing the monies and stealing the country blind.
    What manner of country is this that dont recognise hard work and the hardworker?
    S H A M E…..

    Even though we don’t deserve him, with all our badmouthing and insults despite all his efforts, Keshi should stay on as coach and a better contract signed!!

    NFF! NFF! NFF! how many times did i call you people??????? Bikonu, Please NU renew Keshi’s contract and while ya’ll at it, make it a very long contract too cos we are tired of all this 2, 2 years contract and before you know it we are back to this “My Contract has expired story or i have re-signed and i have not resigned super stories” the guy has done a great job so far, leave him to carry on the mantle for me i believe continuity will play a key role, rather than to have a new coach who will have to start from the beginning to adapt to the players pattern of play or come with a new formula that might take everlasting for the players to adapt to.
