Amadu: Keshi’ll Sign New Deal Before Sudan Game

–NFF General Secretary Musa Amadu assures Nigerians

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) General Secretary, Musa Amadu has said that Stephen Keshi would sign a fresh contract to manage the Super Eagles before the team’s Africa Nations Cup qualifiers with Sudan next month.

Nigeria will play Sudan in Omdurman in continuation of the AFCON 2015 qualifiers on Oct. 11, before the return-leg in Abuja on Oct. 15.

Amadu said the deal would boost the morale of the team in securing a ticket for the competition to be hosted by Morocco next year.

He dismissed insinuations that the delay in the contract was responsible for the poor result Eagles got against visiting Red Devils of Congo in Calabar and the 0-0 draw in South Africa.

“I don’t see how the coach’s contract will affect the performance of the team; that the inability of the coach to know his fate was responsible for the result is just speculation.

“I have no doubt that he will sign new contract; I know it’s critically important that the coach signs his contract to secure his future and to know exactly what is due to him.

“I am sure we will be able to sort out things before the next two games against Sudan,” Amadu said.

The NFF scribe however denied issuing a statement that the forthcoming elective congress of the NFF would hold in Warri, Delta State but confirmed that the first NFF Extraordinary Congress would take place on Sept. 20.

“As far as election and the two congresses are concerned, I have made the agenda clear that the executive committee will propose to the congress a road map.

“I can confirm to you that the first extraordinary general assembly will take place on Sept. 20 in Warri Delta State.

“On that day, as I said earlier, the NFF board will propose a road map, leading up to the election for the congress to endorse.

    Did Super Eagle still needs Keshi. Unless you will include Sylvanus Okpara in the coaching crew because evidence has shown that he is the man behind the cloud.

    The NFF can decide to keep or Sack keshi. Who ever is in charge needs to fix the Super Eagles particularly in the passing ability of the team, tactically and in the Creative midfield position

    It surprises me that in a country of over 150 million people, Nigeria cannot find 1 creative midfielder to do a decent job in Midfield, yet the Congolese Midfielder Dore(Number 10 Jersey) who plays in Bulgaria did a wonderful job and made Mikel and Onazi look like amateurs.

    Nigeria has Iheanacho(we all know what he can do), Nigeria has Chuks Aneke(a creative midfielder) an Arsenal product that has played all the games for his Top flight Belgian club in the Europa cup and Belgian League. Aneke has played over 70 games in England and has scored at least 23 goals from Midfield during his time in England and Belgium so far. Nigeria has Sone Aluko.

    Keshi continues to use Oduamadi(who plays in the Italian lower leagues) so why cant he bring in Iheanacho or Chuks Aneke to play in the midfield department his team is lacking. If Congo can benefit from a creative Midfield player like Dore whose time in Europe has been in Lower league French clubs and a Bulgarian team, why cant Keshi Benefit from the creative skills and intricate passing abilities of Iheanacho and Chuks Aneke. There is no player in the Current Eagles team that is better than Iheanacho and Chuks Aneke in the creative department of Midfield.

    Emenike has not scored a goal in the last 12 games he has played for Nigeria(mainly due to poor service from midfield). Yet Keshi has found no genuine striking alternative or Creative player. Nigeria has won only 1 game in the last 11 games since qualifying for the 2014 World cup. This is very poor.
