Stephen Keshi Makes U-Turn Says He Will Return As Nigeria Coach For Next Month Nation’s Cup Qualifier
Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi today said he will return as Nigeria Coach, for next month qualifiers.
Speaking on today’s AIT’s SportsExtra progamme, Keshi said he has now “temporarily abandoned” his decision to walk away.
“I want to respect the wishes of Nigerians and the appeal by the Sports Minister to handle the team at least for the two games,” he said.
“The need to answer the patriotic call and respect the wishes of Nigerians informed my coming for the key games.
“I’m going to see out these two games and we’ll hopefully then sit down and talk about a new contract”
“We work so hard to win the Nations Cup in South Africa, I think we should do all that we can to defend it in Morocco next year,” he added on AIT’s SportsExtra on Monday.
“They want me to carry on but nothing has been finalised, but officials, fans and the players want me to stay.”
He added: “I’m going to see out these two games and we’ll hopefully then sit down and talk about a new contract, if everything can be agreed.
