Equatorial Guinea reject Keshi, retain Goikoetxea

Share This

The Equatorial Guinea Football Federation has decided to maintain Coach Andoni Goikoetxea at his post after an initial call for applications for new managers which included out of contract Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi.

The body’s president Domingo Mituy Edjang said that time was too short to recruit a new hand ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations to be held in the central African nation from January 17 to February 8, 2015.

“We cannot replace a coach with less than one month to the competition,” Edjang said.

“We have a contract with Goikoetxea which expires on December 31, 2014 but due to time factor, we have decided to extend it to cover the Afcon.”

Former Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac and Nigeria’s Stephen Keshi had applied for the job alongside several others, according to the FA.

The Nzalang Nacional is currently in Lisbon, Portugal to carry out preparations for the tournament.

The Spanish coach left with 15 home-based players who will be joined by the foreign legion. They will return on January 15, officials said.
