Keshi: ‘Sacking’ Me Won’t Solve Eagles Problem

Keshi: ‘Sacking’ Me Won’t Solve Eagles Problem

Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi, still wants to continue in his role despite missing out on qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Keshi believes sacking him will do nothing to reverse the downward trend the Eagles are currently experiencing, insisting the problems goes beyond him.

“If a team fails, sacking the coach won’t solve the problem. The authority should look beyond the coach to find solutions to the problem,” Keshi says.

Keshi, who has been working without a contract since the expiration of his last deal after the World Cup, admits that failure to qualify for next AFCON is failure on his part.

“I can’t deny it is a shame that we failed to qualify. On my part, I failed the Nation but my players took South Africa for granted, a match they needed to win,” Keshi confesses.

Keshi’s agent, Emma Addo is however silent on his client’s future but echoes Keshi’s sentiment that the problem of the team goes beyond the coach.

“No explanation will be acceptable now by Nigerians, but Super Eagles problems goes beyond coaching. If some issues are not resolved, no one can succeed for long with the team,” Addo states, according to sl10.ng.

“We shouldn’t forget where Keshi picked this team from in 2012, almost same place like they are now, but nobody cared about how they got there, that is why it happened again,” Adoo argues.

The Super Eagles will not be involved in any Grade A game until the next international break in March 2015.

    Amaju Pannick and the NFF should lobby Danagogo behind closed doors and convince him that Keshi needs to go. I am shocked that Keshi is not being Honarable by stepping aside, to allow the NFF to have fresh start. Keshi has lost the support of most Nigerians. He should do the right thing by stepping aside.

    Mr. Keshi I love you, but please respect yourself and resign. Your continuing as coach does not make sense.

    Retaining you will not solve the Eagle’s problems either.

    All the countries that sacked their coaches, eventually qualified for next year’s AFCON. Those that didn’t and could not qualify have already done so (like Egypt). Wait a minute, who is even talking of a sack when your contract expired long ago. Did you not say the NFF couldn’t have sacked you because you had no contract with them? For those of us who will not forget your speeches/comments in a hurry, there is no escape for you this time around. Focus on the six countries that have laid red carpets for your reception, while we focus on the future for our dear Super Eagles.

    You are trying to quote Mr. President by saying “the coach is not the problem, but NFF house that needs to be put in order”. News flash number 1, the President is a confirmed politician, so he can say anything without reasoning it out. The minds of the people would adjust towards any nonsense that is said or he could be ignored for lack of a better word. News flash number 2, the Super Falcons and even Falconets won great tournaments in the midst of that same WAHALA (if not worse). These excuses further confirms that you will remain a committed unrepentant and incompetent Big Bros. Really and truly, your have exhausted your injury time, so YOUR TIME IS UP!!!

    The right and moral thing for you to do now is to leave. Dont wait to be asked. You built the team up nd destroyed it with unnecessary changes and fighting with your players. Do the honourable thing.

    keshi have reached his limits,he has lost technical balance,he has nothing more to offer to the National team and should be shown the door out.

  • GABRIEL GADDIN 4 years ago

    It is only foolish FA that will retain Keshi. NFF should do the right thing and move our football forward. Apparently not with Keshi.

    Trying to satisfy man is like trying to fill a bottomless pit with great efforts. Nigerians who had talked evil of Coach Keshi are ingrates who fail to appreciate the contributions of Keshi to Nigeria’s football. Obey said there is nothing you can give to satisfy a natural man. Men are without sympathy especially the black people. Nigeria cannot be winning all the time. God created all the countries and only Him can determine who will qualify and who will not. stop running Keshi down, he did contribute his own quota, it is time for you to do yours. i expect no sympathy for my comments, it is only your understanding that is needful. Keshi is a hero and should be celebrated.

    Those calling for keshi sack are all idiot…. If your father was keshi, you will have seen reason with him and support him… All the local coaches and foreign once you brought, who gave you the nation cup or took you to round of 16 in the world cup? Was it keshi that told Ahmed Musa to miss those goals or told , ambrose and Omeruoe to be stupid… If they were not invited or were substitutes in that match all of you will be loins on keshi necks. Keshi did his best…. No one is blaming the players…. Are we the only one that did not qualify? Let just support this man for next time and stop been on grateful… Keshi the problem is above you… We Nigerians are also the problem… Sacking you means nothing….. Because the next coach will be worst… May God help you to succeed. Email.. [email protected].

  • The die is cast and no gain saying mr Keshi should continue as the coach of super eagles. Fresh hands is urgently needed to steer the honest nest. My advise is that mr Keshi should be paid for his services and relieved of his duty as the coach. Let’s give mr Sunday Oliseh a trial. His educational background and involvement in football may reflect in his coaching ability. Nigerians have no option than keeping the flag flying

  • KESHI PLEASE GO. YOU ARE A GOAT. PLEASE GO BRFORE THUNDER AND FIRE STRIKE YOU FROM ABOVE. WE NEED A COACH WHO WILL INVITE ALL OUR STARS…..WHO WILL NOT FIGHT WITH OSAZE, UCHE, VICTOR MOSES, CHINEDU OBASI, ANICHEBE, IHEANACHO, OUR ADMIRABLE SUNDAY MBA , MARTINS AND MANY MORE. PLEASE GO KESHI …..YOU ARE JUST A STUBORN GOAT……..PLS GO OR I CALL FIRE TO STRIKE YOUR GENERATION………

    I strongly feel Keshi has tried & it is time for him to move on. Truly we need a fresh start, tactically
    & technically. Siasia has been assigned u23, so he is out. That leaves Oliseh & Emenalo…

  • Larry 4 years ago

    John, you must stop abusing keshi or fire will strike you. Football is not mathematics and even
    great soccer nations fail in important matches .Its a factor of so many things……
