Intrigues over, Keshi grabs Eagles job

Published

on

After months of uncertainty and speculation over his future, coupled with a lot of intrigues, ex-international, Stephen Keshi has signed a new contract to coach Nigeria’s senior national team, the Super Eagles for two years.

The contract was signed in Abuja on Tuesday.

Keshi’s contract with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to coach the Super Eagles expired in June, 2014 – after the FIFA World Cup. Some opposed extending Keshi’s tenure as the Super Eagles coach after they failed to qualify for the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

Talks on a renewal also stalled in February when Keshi described NFF’s extension offer as a “slave contract”.
