Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi
The Nigeria Football Federation has moved to conclude an agreement with Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi for his contract renewal as the Super Eagles manager. Going by the decision of the NFF Executive Committee on Thursday in Abuja, Keshi may resume at his post in less than a fortnight from now.
The NFF is speeding up the process of the negotiations ahead of the country’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda in the first week of September.
Keshi has already expressed his desire to continue as the manager of the Eagles in response to the offer made to him by the Federation.
The NFF said, “Having received a written expression of interest from Mr. Stephen Keshi to continue as head coach of senior national team, Super Eagles, the Executive Committee mandated the Secretariat to reach out to Mr. Keshi to conclude the details of his contract and signing by next week, so that he can resume work ahead of the fast-approaching 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series.”
Keshi took charge of the Eagles in November 2011 and during his two and a half years as manager. He won the 2013 African cup and reached the second round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil before his contract ran out in July with that competition.
Keshi had announced that he had offers from several countries with South Africa as top on the list. ——by @UC Browser
