The President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick has stated that out-of-contract Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, will only continue in his position as coach of the team unless he agrees to the terms of the federation.
Amaju, who was on Channels’TV sports programme Sports Tonight on Tuesday, insisted that Keshi must work in tandem with the technical study group to revamp the squad after their inability to defend their 2013 AFCON title in South Africa.
“I don’t think we have any issues keeping Keshi,” Amaju said. “But he must agree to our terms.
“Keshi will be an integral part of the scheme if he agrees on the deal. And he will have to work with the technical study group headed by Jay Jay Okocha to scrutinize the players’ welfare, players attitude and fitness level. We are talking football science here.
“We also have to consider what we can accommodate and we have to consider if he can work with our technical study group, there are so many factors. A contract is not signed overnight because we don’t just want to sign any contract with him.”
