Amodu Backs Keshi’s Return In Letter To NFF

Amodu Backs Keshi’s Return In Letter To NFF

Coach Shaibu Amodu has pleaded passionately with the leadership of Nigeria Football Federation to allow Stephen Keshi handle the Super Eagles for the two remaining matches of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

In a letter dated 27th October, 2014 and addressed to NFF President Amaju Pinnick through the Chairman of NFF Technical Committee, the 56 –year old tactician who was named as new Head Coach penultimate week, said he wanted Keshi reconsidered for the two matches as the time –frame is too short to tinker with the fabric of the squad or start to build a new one altogether.

“Following wide consultations that I have carefully made within the past two weeks since the appointment, and for the sake of professionalism, I want to specially appeal to you to reconsider the matter and allow Stephen Keshi to finish the project that he has started – the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying race.

“Sir, my opinion also is that the time –frame is too short to start tinkering with the fabric of the team or attempt to build a new team altogether.

“As Technical Director of the NFF, I am ready and willing to help build a better relationship among Keshi (with whom I have enjoyed good working relationship in the past and who is still very close to me), the players and the NFF Technical Committee.

“I am assuring you, Mr. President, that I will offer whatever assistance required by Keshi and his crew for the remaining two matches, and also be there to offer advice, suggestions and efforts towards building a stronger Super Eagles’ team after the qualifying race.”

    MR AMODU, I AM REALLY IMPRESSED BY YOUR WISE DECISION AND ADVICE, I REALLY THINK AND CONVINCED YOU ARE MAKING SENSE HERE. PLS HELP KESHI TO BROKER PEACE WITH ALL PLAYERS AND ALSO ADVICE HIM TO KNOW HOW TO MANAGE EVEN STUBBORN PLAYERS.

    EVEN IN OUR PRIVATE HOMES WE HAVE SOME CHILDREN THAT ARE STUBBORN BUT THAT DID NOT MAKE THE PARENT TO REJECT THEM OR THROW THEM AWAY LIKE A PIECE OF RUBBISH BUT LEARN TO MANAGE AND HELP THEM GROW UP TO REALITY OF LIFE.

    KESHI SHOULD LEARN FROM OTHER COACHES WHO HAVE MANAGE STUBBORN PLAYERS LIKE BECKHAM , EVRA, CR7 EVEN MESSI OF RECENT DISOBEYING HIS COACH RIGHT TO SUBSTITUTE HIM IN A MATCH. ETC
    GOD BLESS NIGERIA FOOTBALL, GOD BLESS NIGERIA AS A NATION. AMEN

      i like your comment, so funny, anyway Super Eagles is not a rehabilitation centre and Keshi was employed to coach a football team and not to manage or help Stuborn players, if you are a 30yrs old player and you still having problem with attiltude then keep that to your self..

  • Amodu Shuaibu. Kudos to you. I was never your fan but with your thinking and your maturity, I bow. Only if Keshi will do the same. We were in the same situation when Keshi took the job from Siasia. What you just did, Keshi will never do it for yo due to his greed and arrogance.

    @Afolabi David… Not sure a leopard can change its skin overnight. Too late for Keshi to change his attitude. They don’t call him BIG BOSS for nothing. We know him from his playing days for his big ego. During his playing days, he was fond of dictating to coaches which players to bring to camp and which players to make the team. If he was doing that when he was a player, what do you expect of him as a coach. That is what we are getting now.
