Adamu backs Keshi for Eagles job

Former FIFA executive committee member Amos Adamu has submitted that under-fire coach, Stephen Keshi be given a chance to continue with the Super Eagles.

Keshi, is out of contract and the Nigeria Football Federation has hinted that he could still be the man that will take charge of the Super Eagles, which he led to win the 2013 African Cup of Nations and a second round finish at the 2014 World Cup.

Keshi’s contract expired after the world cup in Brazil, but was urged to stay on by the powers that be even as the coach’s relationship with the NFF was estranged. He failed to qualify the Eagles for the 2015 AFCON.

“ I believe that Coach Keshi should be given the opportunity to govern the Eagles. He’s proven he has guts. We should not forget that prior to the AFCON qualifiers we hardly had an FA because we constantly came under the threats of FIFA suspension and bans.

“ You can access a Coach from time to time and if he isn’t giving the desired results then you can sack him, but Keshi has shown he is one you can reckon with on the continent,” said Adamu.
