Keshi Won’t Be Sacked Before Sudan Tie

Keshi Won’t Be Sacked Before Sudan Tie

–NFF board member declares

A member of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF has told Complete Sports that Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi will not be sacked before Wednesday’s 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan in Abuja, saying the board led by Pinnick Amaju will give him all the support he needs to win the match despite his inability to win last Saturday’s game in Khartoum.

The top official who is from the South East said the Glass House was sad seeing Sudan beating Nigeria despite it being an away match but insists that the board will not take any action now until after the match on Wednesday.

“This is not a thing that makes anyone happy at all, losing to Sudan was not only disgraceful but shameful to both the players and the coaches but we are not going to allow that to force us into taking any decision that could affect our Nations Cup ambition”, says the board member
The dark complexioned football administrator also told Complete Sports that the FA will work closely with Keshi in the area of selection to ensure he fields the best against Sudan in the return leg match.

“We are going to give him all the support he needs to win the match like we have always been doing anyway but this time around, we need to work closely with the coaches to make sure we have a quality selection for the match because it is very important for us to win since we lost the first leg match.

Meanwhile, Nigeria maintained the last position on the Group A table as the Super Eagles can only boast of one point after three games in the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

    Why the board member are talking about sacking Keshi it is need to talk about that again? His contract has expired since after world cup is it need to sack him again or you should just tell him to go and ten call Siasia back and give him second chance because his boys play good game and winning matches during his time not until last match against Guinea when they rebelled against him by using people like Osase and co to make him loose his job by them.. Please NFF CALL sIASIA BACK HE IS FAR BETTER THAN KESHI GOD BLESS 9JA !!!

  • Granted Keshi was at the helm when we won the AFCON, I can tell you that Keshi benefited from the Team built by Samson Siasia. The result of the efforts put in in building that team by Siasia was Keshi reaping from where he did not sow by winning the AFCON. So overtime, when it was time for Keshi to build his own team with his own input and footprint, he started building the team with players that are not necessarily good players but with players he could make money from. The effect of that selfishness began to manifest with the CONFED Cup and the climax was the Brazil World Cup. How can we explain winning just one game in the last 13 matches. Are we progressing or is it not clear that Keshi has put our soccer into reverse gear? The result of what we are getting today boils down to Keshi’s laziness, Arrogance and selfishnes. Apart from the fact that Keshi is not a good coach, he is technically bereft and he is not a good manager. He devides the camp and just the way he did in his playing days to promote his selfish agenda. He has taken us for a ride for too long. He needs to go. The good thing is he has no contract, so it is easy for NFF to take a walk….

    Siasia=keshi,and keshi=siasia.period.

  • lucky Ukhun 4 years ago

    Keshi couldn’t have won the nations cup without sylvanus okpala,and siasia couldn’t have achieved what he achieved without Simon kalika. Neither keshi nor siasia are knowledgeable enough in football matters to achieve results independently.Enough of kindergarten coaches.

    i beg oga collect your last EGWUNJE before u go sack Keshi and keep fooling yourself not nigerians. what do we have to loose again? the road to MORROCO is closed already. the western countries should sack such failure coach immediately while his assistant or the next available coach handles the Sudan match.
    meanwhile we Nigerians have seen the work of so called shortlisted coaches in Naija. with due respect Garba Marwa is the only person who has proven himself above average and should be given the SE job. no more SIASIA; KESHI; AMODU

    God save Naija

    @lucky Ukhun, i totally disagree with you that Keshi couldn’t have won AFCON without Sylver. My brother, it’s like saying Westernhoff couldn’t have won Afcon in 1994 without Bonfere Jo. Keshi was the head coach and he brought Sylver to work with him when the contract was given, he still could have contracted someone else to work him but because Sylver has been his close friend and a experience coach so the trust was there he went for him . Just like Valerie Hondonou the Togolese whom Keshi had employed to work with him all the time, does it mean they are the brain behind it. It was a team work so let us not discredit Keshi, you have to give him credit to put this coaching team together, they worked like family until those Vampires call NFF came to disorganized them and sacked Sylver. How many times has Keshi begged them to recall Sylver for him, did they do it? No! because they wanted Keshi to fail and be sacked. Please don’t follow blindly, those guys in the glass house knows what they are doing.
