Indications are rife that he Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, will dump Super Eagles’ coach, Stephen Keshi, over the new contract for a foreign coach, with Sam Alladyce on top of the bill, in view of the loss of President Goodluck Jonathan to APC’s Muhammadu Buhari.
Top sources believe that the NFF board are divided over the decision to shun Keshi out of the job now that President Jonathan has lost moreso that the Buhari people will be too busy with settling down than to bother with football issues.
According to our source, “if Jonathan had won the 28th March elections, we would have been forced to honour the contract we were offering Keshi. We had to also play for time to delay his signing so that the outcome of the election will determine if we will retain him. It is certain, we shall not retain him. He can go because President Jonathan who is his backer is not coming.
Members of the Felix Anyansi-Agwu Technical Committee have decided to tow the path of the NFF President, Amaju Pinnick to go for a foreign coach than stick with Keshi who is an unwanted person.
To support their campaign, a massive media blitz is expected from sports pages columnists and editors to raise dust about the recent struggles of the Super Eagles in friendly matches against Uganda and South Africa as part of the means to undermine the abilities of local coaches.
It would be recalled that the NFF said last week that it would not make an announcement on the fate of Keshi despite confirming a new deal has been approved.
“Keshi’s contract has been approved by the NFF board, I can confirm that to Nigerians,” NFF president, Amaju Pinnick said.
“All that is left now is for him to sign it. As we speak Keshi has not put pen to paper.”
