Keshi: Minister pulls NFF by the ear



It seems the debate of whether or not the NFF will employ Stephen Keshi, or if he will accept their terms, may yet pitch the football house with the minister of sports, Tam Danagogo.

Danagogo has warned the NFF not to employ a lesser coach than Keshi should the ex-Togo coach decline to lead the Super Eagles.

Keshi has until Thursday this week to act on the NFF over the contract offered him.

“What I have urged the NFF to do is to make sure that should Keshi not be given the job, a coach with a lesser pedigree than Keshi should not be employed. I have said we should encourage our local coaches,” Danagogo said.

“Many have argued that presently Keshi is the best we have for now, while others are of the view that he has done his best.

He added: “And when we say the best hands, we should be looking at coaches in the class of the Jose Mourinho’s of this world, Pep Guardiola… Those are the kind of coaches we should be looking at.
