Keshi Is Happy Nigeria Is Out Of World Cup After Signing Contract To Coach South Africa

keshi happy nigeria out world cup

June 30, 2014 – Super Eagles Coach Keshi Is Happy Nigeria Is Out Of World Cup After Signing Contract To Coach South Africa

After tonight’s defeat Keshi was asked if he would be staying as the coach, Keshi said “I don’t know, I don’t know,” adding that his priority was to see his wife and children back home.

“I would love to be here at the end of the tournament (but) going back would be a good thing,” Keshi said.

It hasn’t been easy for Keshi in Brazil. He faced criticism from media back home after a 0-0 draw with Iran to open group play and then had to deal with player disgruntlement over unpaid bonuses that led to a training session being canceled on Thursday, just four days before the last-16 match.

Keshi has signed a new contract to coach South Africa’s Bafana Bafana team. He plans to leave for South Africa after the world cup.

After all the World cup stress, Keshi thinks going back home would be a good thing. Hmmmm…. Some things are better not said.

    Even with that controversial defeat by French national soccer team, Nigerian people still own coach Stephen Keshi a big thank you. Why? The Bible says, “a prophet is never honored in his hometown.” Coach Stephen Keshi is a great, highly patriotic and honorable Nigerian citizen that was very successful in despite hindrances and discouragement from that corrupt and terrible organization called Nigerian Football Association (NFA). How can you expect World Cup victory from a oil rich national team whose players were denied their bonuses and allowances in a foreign land? Nigerian government can not pay our soccer players and their able coach representing our beloved nation in a world sport simply because of corruption and mismanagement of officials of the NFA. This is a shame of a nation. But our corrupt politicians in both “Houses of Looters” in Abuja can pay themselves over $2 millions dollars annually in salaries and bonuses. President Badluck Jonathan had money to purchase many unwanted presidential jets, and various state governors have billion of dollars looted money in their various foreign bank accounts. As for me, I would ever be proud of Stephen Keshi and his many achievements since taking over the job as our national coach. Among his achievements was winning the African Nations Cup in 2012 for Nigeria; he qualified our nation to the 4th straight FIFA World Cup championship in Brazil; Mr. Keshi also discovered new talented players like Musa,Sunday Mba just to mention a few, and he won our nation the 2004 African Nation Cup in Tunisia. Leave it or take it, is a matter of time, Nigerian people will recognize coach Keshi’s achievements and his deep love for his corrupt nation. A drastic change is needed in Nigerian sport arena and a total dissolution of NFA must be attained before any meaningful progress can be seen in the most popular sport in our nation. The game of soccer means so much to us as Nigerians because its unites us regardless of their tribes, faith, language and culture.

    Stephen Keshi is a great coach.He was plunged between the devil and deep blue sea.So for those cynics and critics ,it is not easy to coach Nigeria.Once you take up the job you will be faced with myriads of man-made troubles emanating from all angles.Those spoilers ‘ll try all they can to frustrate you through every means by owing you,by using media to fight you,by trying to select a player for you and other variable means.So for the Keshi to ‘ve a rest of mind work as he planned he ought to leave his Nigerian job and seek employment else where,where he will not be screwed every minutes by the media and money conscious individuals.The worst of it all is that even if you win the cup majority of these gluttons will not appreciate your effort and achievement!
