Sports Super Eagles might play next Nations Cup qualifiers without Stephen Keshi

There seems to be no end in sight over the situation of Stephen Keshi as Super Eagles coach.

Keshi is yet to be offered a substantial contract by the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) since his first one expired after the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Both parties are yet to reach an agreement over the terms of work,with Keshi only brought back for the last two qualifiers against Congo and South Africa on the insistence of the Sports Minister,Tammy Danagogo.

“It is up to the NFF to decide who handles the Eagles,” said Patrick Omorodion, spokesman for sports minister said.

“The minister only requested that Keshi should handle the two games, since there was a vacuum.”

There are some reports that the NFF might not be willing to allow Keshi to continue as coach of the Super Eagles and are even considering drafting in another person to oversee the remaining qualifiers.

Another factor could be the inability to reach an agreement on his pay,with the NFF reluctant to pay him the N15million he was initially asking for.

The Super Eagles will play their next qualifiers next month against Sudan,but the fate of who coaches the team remains a worry.
