After months of speculation, Stephen Keshi has returned as Super Eagles manager. He signed a 2 year contract today nine months after his initial deal expired.
The contract signing took place in the presence of top NFF executives and the media today.
“We lost in the past, we drew and we won. But we have to move forward now. This is a new page in Nigerian football and what happened in the past has happened. I have what it takes to take d country forward,” Keshi said.
He continued, “We need the media. I cannot do this alone. I will work with office of the NFF to move our football forward.”
On Keshi’s contract delay, NFF vice President Seyi Akinwunmi explained that the delay in his return was occasioned by the elongated and unwarranted crises the organization had last year. “The NFF have agreed to continually sponsor Keshi on refresher courses.” He added.
