The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have denied reports that they have agreed terms on a new contract with out-of-contract Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi.
News has been making the rounds that Keshi will sign a new one-year contract worth N84million at N7million per month, but the NFF have moved swiftly to dispel such reports.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick says they haven’t gotten as far as agreeing a new contract for Keshi, despite confirming the 52-year-old will continue.
“We have not come to that yet as it concerns Keshi. I’m not around, I’m in a CAF meeting in Equatorial Guinea but we have not come to that,” he told Brila FM.
The NFF have said in no unclear terms that Keshi remains the Super Eagles coach, but have always kept mom on whether they plan to offer the former Nigeria captain fresh terms, with Keshi’s contract running out at the end of Nigeria’s participation at the World Cup in Brazil.
And in the same development, NFF’s director of communications Ademola Olajire has also rubbished reports of a new contract with Keshi, saying they will make it known whenever Keshi signs a new deal.
“People should have patience and let the NFF come out officially to speak about. But as I speak with you, I really cannot say there is anything like that and if something like that were to come up, you will know,” he told Hot FM.
