Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi yesterday appeared before the Organising and Disciplinary Committee of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF to defend whether he applied to coach Ivory Coast National team or not.
Keshi who stormed Glasshouse, headquarters of NFF located within Wuse Zone 7 in Abuja at exactly 11:54 am immediately zoomed into the conference room where he faced Chris Green-led Disciplinary Committee in an almost two hour meeting.
Speaking to Nigerian Pilot Sports shortly after facing the NFF Committee, Keshi whose contract was renewed in April confirmed that he has given details of how his name would have appeared as one of those who were shortlisted by Cote D’Ivoire Football Federation to coach its Senior National team.
According to the former Mali and Togo handler who was visibly angry over situations surrounding his invitation to appear before NFF, “We thank God for the victory in Kaduna against Chad. Now I think what we should be thinking of is how prepared we are to face and win our away match against Tanzania, that should be our mission right now not what media said about Keshi.
“We need to change from all this little gossip and all these stuff, we need to go ahead and forge a formidable team which includes the press, the players, NFF so that we can conquer the world and conquer African continent. My focus right now is to prepare for the game against Tanzania.”
On his meeting with NFF Disciplinary committee, Keshi who refused to divulge details of what transpired between him and the committee said “Everything went well but NFF will talk to you on that but everything went well. Like you guys just know I never applied for Cote d’Ivoire job.
“No, My name is in almost every nation. Should I take countries like Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania to court. It happens to every coach, is not a big deal.”
The NFF and Keshi have been at logger heads after his contract expired last year, a situation that delayed his contract renewal, one year after.
