—As Super Eagles Coach Faces Panel
By Johnny Edward
The Nigerian Football Federation paid the two months outstanding salaries owed Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi early Tuesday morning, completesportsnigeria.com has reliably gathered.
Completesportsnigeria.com exclusively reported on Monday that Keshi, whose relationship with his emplaoyers appears strained, was owed two months salaries.
But the governingg body has swiftly reacted, offsetting the coach's May and June salaries.
Keshi, who is expected to face the NFF Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday to explain himself regarding his alleged application for the vacant Cote d' Ivoire job, received a bank alert this morning confirming the payment, according to a source close to the Nigeria coach.
"They (the NFF) have moved quickly by paying his outstanding salaries this morning before he faces them in the panel," the source, a close friend and confidant of Keshi, told completesportsnigeria.com.
"They have now paid him so that he cannot use the owed salaries in his defence. But I'm sure all the misconceptions they have against Keshi will be clarified today."
Also expected to face the NFF Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday is Vincent Enyeama.
