Keshi to sign on again as Nigeria coach
« on: August 07, 2014, 09:04:02 PM »
Stephen Keshi is set to sign a new contract as Nigeria coach next week, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) executive committee announced. The 52-year-old's initial contract expired with the World Cup in Brazil, but he expressed his willingness to continue after leading the Super Eagles to last year’s Africa Cup of Nations title and a place in the round of 16 in Brazil.

"The executive committee has mandated the secretariat to reach out to Keshi and conclude the details of his contract," NFF spokesperson Emeka Iyama said.

"We expect that the signing would be next week so that he can resume work ahead of the fast-approaching 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series," he said.

Keshi’s immediate task will be a 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on September 7 between Nigeria and Rwanda

 Stephen Keshi has rejected the contract offered to him by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to continue as head coach of the Super Eagles.

On Tuesday, members of the NFF unanimously agreed that “having finalized the fresh contract with Mr Stephen Keshi, for him to continue as head coach of Super Eagles, and having forwarded same to Mr Keshi, the Executive Committee expects the new contract to be signed by the NFF and Mr Keshi in a matter of days.”

That contract has now been rejected by Keshi who is asking for a bigger salary than N10 million (about $62,000 USD) offered by the NFF.

Keshi was previously paid N5 million (about$31,000 USD) before his contract ran out after the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

Despite the 100% increase in remuneration, Keshi is still not convinced it is the right amount for him to accept if he would continue in the saddle as Nigeria trainer.

“Keshi is bigger than N10 million. He is not a N5 million or N10 million coach. A club in Angola is ready to offer him N18 million (about $111,000 USD) million a month,” Keshi told journalists in Abuja through his spokesman, Emma Addo.
