There is palpable uneasy calm at Glass House, headquarters of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF following the decision to terminate a two-year contract with former Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi.
NFF had on Saturday night issued a press statement that the former Mali and Togo handler will no longer head the technical crew of the country’s senior national over allegation that he applied for Ivory Coast job while his contract was still running with Nigeria.
Again, the nation’s football body accused Keshi of fielding a non-league player to feature for Super Eagles during the first 2017 AFCON qualifier game against Chad in Kaduna.
After taking a critical look into the reasons given by the executive committee of NFF, Nigerian Pilot Sports learnt that the leadership of National Sports Commission, NSC headed by Director General Al Hassan Yakmut has picked holes in their decision.
An impeccable source who is in the know told our correspondent that already officials of NFF who are jittery over the concern of NSC are making efforts to retrieve Keshi’s sack letter they copied to the commission.
The source further stated “I can confirm to you that the management of NSC is still looking into the decision of NFF. How can the football official take that kind of decision which does not have anything to do with the performance of the coach who they hired in March without first of all informing the commission that supervise them.
As at the time of filling this report yesterday at noon, our Correspondent who visited package A of the national stadium where the headquarters of NSC is located observed that the management of NSC was locked in meeting though the details of their discussion was not immediately obtained.
