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.
