–Brother reveals interest by three oil-rich countries in big boss
Coach Stephen Keshi is wanted by oil-rich countries Angola, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, according to his brother.
As first reported by AfricanFootball.com, ‘Big Boss’ Keshi has formally agreed to continue as Nigeria coach after his initial contract with the Super Eagles ended with the World Cup in Brazil recently.
However, his brother Emmanuel Ado has specially informed AfricanFootball.com that at least three other offers are on the table for Keshi to consider.
Angola, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon have the petro-dollars to match that of Nigeria in their quest to sign the former Mali and Togo coach.
Ado said: “Nigeria is my brother’s priority. He wants to serve his country that is why he has responded swiftly to the NFF notice of intent.
“Keshi is not keen on the money, all he wants is for both parties to keep to whatever contract is entered. But like he has said there are some salient things he expects from the NFF in the new contract.
“So, the ball is in the court of the NFF. But if it is about offers, he still has others. There have been contacts from Angola, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, but they all have to wait because my brother wants to serve his fatherland.”
Keshi himself claimed on the eve of the 2014 World Cup that he has six offers to consider.
The 52-year-old Keshi guided Nigeria to a third Africa Cup of Nations last year and led the country to the round of 16 of the recent World Cup in Brazil.
He has maintained he has some unfinished business with the Super Eagles.
