Foreign assistant coach for Keshi unnecessary

Ex-international, Joseph Dosu, on Friday said that Nigeria Football Association (NFA’s) proposal for a foreign assistant to Coach Stephen Keshi was unnecessary.

Dosu, a former Super Eagles Goalkeeper, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the proposal could distract Keshi.

He urged the NFA to allow Keshi to concentrate on the 2014 World Cup coming up in June in Brazil.

“I think the NFA should allow him to do his job because he has always delivered.

“Keshi is a seasoned coach; he has shown us what he can do so far.

“I believe we should allow him to continue with his backroom staffs.

“I know NFA wants the best but it just have to trust Keshi’s judgment,’’ Dosu said.

NAN reports that NFA recently met with Keshi, the current African Coach of the Year, and proposed employment of a foreign assistant to him.

Keshi, however, turned the offer down, saying that he wanted one of his assistants, Sylvanus Okpala, who was sacked in 2013, to be recalled to the team.

Keshi is currently working with Daniel Amokachi, Ike Shorunmu and Valere Houandinou as his assistants. (NAN)
