Confusion Over Keshi’s Resignation, as NFF Says ”He Has Not Tendered Official Resignation Letter”Featured, Latest News, News, Sports Tuesday, July 1st, 2014
Stephen Keshi’s future is still undecided after the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) dismissed reports that the Super Eagles coach has resigned following Nigeria’s exit from the World Cup in Brazil.
The African champions, one of only two countries from the continent that made it to the round of 16 were eliminated after losing 0-2 to France on Monday.
Keshi was quoted as saying: ‘’ It’s time for me to go back to my family and face fresh challenges.’’
The ‘’big boss’’ as Keshi is fondly called, told a cross section of Nigerian sports journalists that he did not resign, adding that he did not have a contract with the NFF either.
However, an official of the NFF told ‘’Goal’’ in an interview on Tuesday that ‘’coach Stephen Keshi has not submitted an official letter.’’
‘’He was not employed in the mixed zone or on Facebook.’’
Keshi, who captained the Super Eagles to Tunisia ’94, where Nigeria won the African Cup of Nations under former Dutch manager Clemence Westerhorf, led the team to success in South Africa 2013, winning the continental trophy less than a year after taking charge as coach
