NFF to offer Keshi short-term contract

The vice President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Barrister Seyi Akinwumi has revealed that the football body would reappoint Stephen Keshi on a short term basis, even as he explained that there was a long term plan in place for the Super Eagles.

Akinwunmi said that Keshi has proven that he’s capable of handling the national team but that he cannot be there for long.

“The issue really is that our discussion with Stephen Keshi, as a coach, is on a short-term basis. This means he can’t be there for a lengthy period, so we need to look at the issue of appointing a Nigerian coach in the long-term and how it will affect the whole growth.

“So I don’t think we should isolate the issue of Keshi to just the appointment of coach of the Super Eagles, like it was a quick fix.”

The Man has shown us that he’s able to do it and the Technical Committee has said that he’s able to do it. What we really need to look at is in the long-term what do we do?” the FA chief said.
