Keshi Clears Air On Resignation Rumours as Eagles return Friday

Posted: July 1, 2014 in General

Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi, has said his widely reported resignation from the job may have been a case of misunderstood speech he made to the players in the dressing room after the 0-2 loss to France in the second round of the ongoing World Cup in Brazil.

“What I said to my players was that this maybe my last match at the helm of affairs in the national team, because my contract terminates with the World Cup and I have not been offered a new one. I was a bit shocked that the global media went to town to say I have called it quits with the national team. Resignations are not done on the pages of newspapers but formally”, he said.

He however did not deny that some countries have showed interest in him which he believes is good for Nigerian football and coaches but assured that he will not abandon ship without a formal notice.

Similarly, the national team is expected to return to Nigeria on Friday this week after their ouster from the Mundial. However, not all the 23 players will return with the team to the country as some of them have already gone to join their clubsides for pre-season preparations. Team Administrator, Dayo Enebi Achor, said all logistics have been put in place for those who will not come with the team to Nigeria and those who are returning home for a hitch free trip.
