August 22, 2014 – New Contract: Nigerian Coach Keshi Threatens To Leave Super Eagles Says NFF Is Not Serious

All is not well with Nigerian Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi and NFF board members.

The popular Coach said he is moving on after losing his cool on his contract renewal talk that hasn’t come to a successful end.

In a recent interview on BBC Sports, Keshi said his contract expired on June 30, 2014 and that his new contract hasn’t been finalized.

Read what he told BBC:

“Talks over a new contract shouldn’t drag on. I can’t wait any more – the NFF is not serious. I have moved on. I can only wish the country well for the future.”

“There’s a game in two weeks [Nations Cup qualifier against Congo] but no-one is thinking about it and at the same time they expect you to win. I understand the ongoing crisis facing the federation but the national team should not suffer from such at this crucial stage. Sadly, I also think attention is focused more on the upcoming NFF elections and the national team is simply not a priority.”

“I’ve had about seven countries approach me in the last two months but I kept them all away. I love my country and I am aware of the dream our fans had of me taking this team to the next level. While acknowledging the efforts of some people involved in the negotiation, I think others probably have other important things to do.”

  1. u have been telling us you are going for the past 5months so what are you still doing here. Please pack your load and go
    We need change

  2. I think we should please tell him, what rubbish, you are asking for 15m naira as your monthly salary. Do you know the salary of a medial doctor, or the base salary of those scurity men you see on the road

  3. Plss Mr keshi i’lld appreciate if u leave the Super Eagles of Nigeria. U want 2 destroy our team..SOMBI coach

  4. A beg, elp me tell dis yeye man make him waka go. Abi na only him waka com. Wia u wan make we get dat money pay u? U dey craze. Leave super eagle. I wil call Ayegbeni or dis boy. Ehm. MIKEL to coach them and u wil see how many cup they wil win. Get out keshi

  5. As expected, Timilehin, Leo, Odunze, you guys needed to be true with yourselves…..How can you be expecting super eagles to win a match when they have not even started training and studying other team. But Nigerians we want abracadabra. Stevie Keshi is the best so far and he doesn’t deserve to be here. Super eagles cannot and I repeat cannot get the World Cup unless NFF mentality changes. And to you guys, you talk like a failure and I am not surprised cos, you wrote WAEC 5 times and at the end, you manage to enter one school. So when you begged government to employ you and you experienced disappointment, you now want to transfer your aggression to Keshi. Grow up and be reasonable for 5mins. Your Doctors who are foolishly on strike, what happened to them when Ebola came in to kiss them. Look, the salary he’s requesting for, is not too much and your so called Local government rep, gets more than that, without giving you any happiness, Keshi knew his worth and he demanded for it. You that you don’t have a certificate except that BSC or HND, can you demand for ordinary 50k from your employers? How many Languages can you speak? Local peeps! You can’t, instead, you will lie you can work under pressure. Oshisko, reply and I will tell you more…..

  9. Naija pipo take it easy on Keshi he has done so much for nigeria, winning africa cup for nigeria after 2 decades, couching the team, to reach knockout stagr in the just ended world cup, and for a simple, minor and solvable issues he is being chased like a dog. pipo lest be optimistic by alwayz looking on the bright side of something.
