The ‘Big Boss’ has also stated that he needs to get working immediately ahead of Nigeria’s qualifying campaign for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 53-year old who signed a two-year contract with the Nigeria Football Federation to continue as the Super Eagles coach admitted that there wasn’t much time to waste, adding that he would immediately get to work.

“We have to get the players that are playing regularly for their teams and have at least three or four training sessions before a game, but it’s always very difficult.

“So what we have to do is concentrate on a lot of tactical work most of the time because I think they’re physically fit for their clubs.

“So we just need to try and get it done because we don’t have a lot of time so most of our work will be tactical and positional play,” he stated.

Keshi will earn a monthly salary of N5m, just as he did in his previous contract.
