There are indications that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) may have perfected plans to engage Stephen Keshi on a long term as Super Eagles coach as the Secretary General of the Federation Barrister Musa Amadu has stated that Keshi will sign a fresh contract to manage the Super Eagles before the team’s qualifying game with Sudan in October.
Amadu was quoted as saying that all loose end will be sorted in the shortest possible time while he disagreed that the delay in Big Boss’ contract negotiations were responsible for their unimpressive outings in recent games. “I don’t see how the coach’s contract will affect the performance of the team; that the inability of the coach to know his fate was responsible for the result is just speculation. I have no doubt that he (Keshi) will sign new contract; I know it’s critically important that the coach signs his contract to secure his future and to know exactly what is due to him. I am sure we will be able to sort out things before the next two games against Sudan,” Amadu said.
Nigeria will play Sudan their third game of the qualifier on October 11, before the return leg in Nigeria on October 15.
