NFF sacks coach stephen Keshi
« on: October 16, 2014, 05:49:32 PM »

The Nigerian Footbal Federation (NFF) has sacked super Eagles head coach, stephen Okechukwu Keshi, despite recording his first win in African Cup of Nations qualifiers last night.

The sack is contained in a communique released by the board in the early hours of Thursday.

The communique also indicated that the federation is either going to replace Keshi with Amodu Shuaibu or shop for a foreign coach for the national team in the long run.

However, a consortium of coaches will lead the Super Eagles for ONLY the two concluding matches of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series (against Congo in Brazzaville and against South Africa in Uyo), after which an expatriate coach will be appointed.

The consortium, led by Amodu Shaibu, also has Salisu Yusuf, Gbenga Ogunbote and Aloysius Agu. The team also has a new Coordinator in former international Garba Lawal, while Toyin Ibitoye is the new Media Officer and Godfirst Chike, the new Equipment Manager. Team Secretary, Enebi Achor, is retained.

The NFF thanked Keshi and his assistants for their services to the country and promised to pay them all owed monies within the next fortnight.

The NFF, in recognition of the coaches? on tribulations to the Nigerian game, also approved that the trio of Keshi, Amokachi and Shorounmu should proceed to any coaching course of their choice in any country of their choice to build their capacity.

Super Eagles will travel next month to face Congo and host South Africa in Nigeria in the last phase of the qualifiers, and will need to win both matches to stand any chance of qualification for the 2015 AFCON.
