Former Super Eagles coach, Christian Chukwu believes the Nigeria Football Federation should dispense with out-of-contract Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi and get an alternative.
Chukwu, a member of the immediate past technical committee of the NFF, says the body language of the Glass House is clear they don’t want Keshi to continue, and states that they must get another coach immediately.
“The NFF should look for a coach they have confidence in, because I don’t think they have confidence in Keshi.
“Their body language has shown that they don’t have any confidence in Keshi, so they should come out boldly and go for a coach they have confidence in,” Chukwu told sl10.ng.
The embattled Keshi has been out of contract since Nigeria’s exit at the last World Cup in Brazil, even though he took charge of Nigeria’s ill-fated 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on an interim capacity.
Chukwu, Nigeria’s captain to their first ever Africa Cup of Nations title in 1980, says he is worried with the way the situation is at the moment.
“It is very worrisome that nothing has been done about the situation because it is very obvious the NFF don’t want Keshi, so they should get someone they trust quickly before it gets too late.
“I believe they are under pressure to retain Keshi but they should come out and tell the people putting them under pressure why they don’t want him. The qualifiers for the next Africa Cup of Nations is starting very soon and we still do not have a coach, so it is a problem.
