NFF Makes Alternative Plan Without Keshi Ahead Of AFCON Qualifiers

Reports have emerged that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is mulling over a Plan B to proceed to the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Rwanda on September 5, should Coach Stephen Keshi’s contract remain undecided before the match.

The federation has admitted that the contract negotiations with Keshi may stretch into September, when the Super Eagles begin their qualifiers for the Morocco 2015 AFCON.

The NFF Executive Committee member, Mr. Deji Tinubu, who admitted the imminent delay, said: “It’s possible that our discussions with Keshi could stretch into when we play our first qualifier, but we have made plans for such eventuality.”

“We have a Plan B if negotiations with Keshi are not completed before the qualifiers. There is a plan in place to take care of that, and if it does happen that we didn’t conclude negotiations with him, then we’ll put the other plan in motion,” Tinubu said.
