Furious Nigeria Coach Stephen Keshi has lashed out at the country’s football fans, saying it is a shame they have abused him personally because of the team’s showing at Brazil.
The Super Eagles and coach Keshi came under heavy fire from angry fans after they could only manage a 0-0 draw with Iran in their opening group game at the World Cup in Brazil.
But Keshi has taken serious exception to the fans’ rage, saying there was no justification for them to insult his person.
“I am disappointed, totally disappointed (by the personal attacks), but it’s their thing, no wahala (no problem),” blasted Keshi in Brazil.
“It’s a shame, just a shame that we keep doing the same thing and then they come back and they say they are sorry. Sorry for abusing my mum? Sorry for abusing my siblings? For what? That I am representing Nigeria?”
AfricanFootball.com can recall that ‘Big Boss’ Keshi has already fired a salvo at his fellow former football stars that tore at his team and tactics in Brazil.
He said he had expected much better from them as they ought to know better about the game than the man on the street.
Nigeria takes on Argentina today in Porto Alegre and if they avoided defeat, they will qualify for the knockout rounds of the World Cup for only the third time in their history.
