Fresh Cold War Brews In NFF Over Keshi’s ContractLatest News, News, Sports Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014
By Niyi Adeyi – The rumblings in the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are very far from over as the leadership in the glass house and other resenting interests are again locked in the confusion whether the Super Eagles Chief Coach, Stephen Keshi’s contract be renewed or closed.
AFRICAN EXAMINER learnt that, a section of the NFF leaders were promoting contract renewal for the “Big Boss”, against the interest of another part, which is opposed to the move.
It was gathered that those calling for Keshi were doing so, so as to seek favours of his powerful allies–specifically to save their jobs in the NFF.
The presence of Keshi has recently become a controversial issue both within the NFF and among the football followers.
It would be recalled that the Amaju Pinnick led NFF recently sacked Keshi due to repeated poor showings of the Super Eagles while still playing the 2015 AFCON qualifiers and replaced him with the returnee – Shuaibu Amodu, but was again reinstated ostensibly through ‘orders from the above’.
Some members of the public as well as prominent Nigerian Coaches have unanimously and lately demanded that Keshi should leave.
Keshi’s contract has elapsed since June 2014 – after the world cup tournament hosted by Brazil.
