–Kaduna United General Manager leaves Eagles camp
By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:
Ex-international, Garba Lawal has said that Super Eagles Head coach Stephen Keshi might be right in his decision to reject him as a Coordinator of the senior national team.
Lawal who was appointed the Coordinator of the Super Eagles by the new executive of the NFF led by Amaju Pinnick had his appointment rejected by Keshi whose sack was reversed by the presidency.
The Kaduna United General Manager said that Keshi took his criticism of the Eagles under him personal adding that it should not be because what he did was for the good and development of the national team.
“As a former Super Eagles player, I cannot keep quiet when things are not done in the proper way. I will always say my mind no matter who is involved. I did not attack Keshi as a person but his technical savvy. What is bad Is bad and posterity will not forgive us if we keep quiet,” he stated.
The former Julius Berger player however told Complete Sports that he left the camp in the interest of peace and to avoid any form of distraction in the Eagles quest to qualify for African Nations Cup in Morocco adding that he will continue to pray for the team.
“I wish Keshi well but I will not stop speaking my mind for the good of our national teams. It is okay I step aside for our country’s sake” he concluded.
