Complete Sports can report today that Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi’s fate will be decided today as the Executive board of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF meet in Abuja.
Keshi who led Nigeria to the second round stage at the recently concluded 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, had his contract expired with the Mundial without any word from his employers on whether his contract will be renewed or not.
The soccer tactician popularly called the Big Boss had revealed that South Africa were offering him Bafana Bafana job but news from the former apartheid ravaged country confirmed that there was no interest in the coach and with less than two months to the commencement of the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers, the Nigeria Football Federation may be compelled to offer him contract extension.
A very reliable source in the Glass House told Complete Sports on Wednesday that there is no way the football authority will not discuss Keshi’s contract at the meeting following the crisis that engulfed the country’s football recently which also led to FIFA slamming a suspension hammer on Nigeria before it was lifted.
“ Keshi’s issue is very important and urgent to the nation mostly with few weeks to the commencement of the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers, so I am sure that his contract will be discussed but I cannot say categorically if it will be renewed or not”, says Complete Sports source.
