Lagos – A former  Stationery Stores FC of Lagos defender, Ebitimi Collins, has urged  the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) not to interfere with Stephen Keshi’s job as Super Eagles’ coach.

Collins in Lagos said that Keshi had the necessary credentials to take the Super Eagles to the World Cup in Brazil.

He said the Super Eagles’ coach had the capacity to enhance the Super Eagles’ performance if given a free hand.

“I know Keshi is a good coach, and if we allow him to do his job without troubling him, we will get something out of him.

“If we can win the Nations Cup, who can we not play with?  We may not win the cup, but we may get somewhere in the World Cup.“

Collins, who was fondly called `barbwire` for his uncompromising style of play in his playing days, advised NFA to ensure that the team prepared adequately for the World Cup.

Nigeria is in Group F of the preliminary stage of the mundial alongside Bosnia-Herzegovina, Argentina, and Iran. (NAN)
