Senate Warns NFF Over Keshi

Senate Warns NFF Over Keshi

The Nigerian senate has warned the Nigeria Football Federation against any hasty decisions to ‘sack’ out-of-contract Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi.

The senate has also warned against any hasty decisions to disband the Super Eagles, as calls continue to mount for an overhaul of the entire Super Eagles team.

Speaking in an interview with Cool FM, chairman of the senate committee on sports, Senator Adamu Gumba also urged Nigerians to always exercise some level of patients before asking for the team to be overhauled.

“I always say that Nigerians are impatient because when something happens, you look at it carefully and find out why it happened the way it did before you begin to chart a new course,” Gumba said.

“We lost and some people are already concluding that the team is bad and the coach is bad and we should do something.

“But I think that is not good. We have lost, and we should be allowed to go down, sleep well, think about it before beginning to propose the next line of action for the Nigerian Super Eagles.”

Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after finishing third in Group A behind Congo and South Africa and this has led to calls for the team to be disbanded or overhauled, and for Stephen Keshi to be ‘sacked’ as coach of the team.

    Sack coach and overhaul the team and what next? please don’t mind Nigerians, we want result all the time thinking other teams are sleeping. Look at the world cup, Nigerians were saying we must beat Argentina, thank God we did not embarrass ourselves, thanks to the players and coaches. Argentina knows that football is a serious business so they don’t joke with it, they have structures in place to develop, recruit and then sustain the national teams but in Nigeria is not the same. No coach will survive here with this NFF pattern. You can have new players who will just do well for 1yr or atmost 2yrs they will worn out because no succession plan in place. This is not coaches work. All these ex players who talk to much should rather use their time and experience and form a team to discover players for the national team but they will not, instead they chose to open soccer academy’s sending the players to national teams, conflict of interest; it’s the same thing that happens with our politicians. Isn’t it a shame that NFF have no scouting team that we know of? They said Keshi should go for refresher and what about them? Nonsense!

    The bitter truth is that i dont see any Nigerian coach today thats better than keshi not even the Amodu`s and Chukwu`s unless if they wanna go for a foreign coach as usual, and no white coach will come and live in Nigeria with his family,the best they will do is come in couple of days in a month,do nothing and by month end they pocket their 10M and with all this NFF NO MONEY,NO MONEY They will still pay him , so where is the sense in all that .?
