“We Still Want Keshi Despite Delay” – NFF Boss Stresses

President of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has stated that the body will work with Stephen Keshi, stressinng that no one is forcing the coach on the federation.

Pinnick’s statement follows media reports that the Glass House  is stalling on a new deal for the out-of-contract coach until a new government led by President-elect Muhammadu Buhari has come into office on May 29 after Friday’s public presentation did not happen.

The NFF Boss said: “I am shocked at these insinuations because the NFF executive committee gave the go-ahead for a new contract with Keshi at its meeting in Uyo last month, and Keshi and his lawyers have looked at the contract agreement and are satisfied with every word in the final draft,” said Pinnick.”

“As a federation,we have gone ahead to arrange some refresher programmes for Keshi, at nobody’s prodding,and which are meant to enhance Keshi’s knowledge and improve the man’s capacity as a world-class strategist. We would not be doing that if we are not ready to work with him.”

“No one is forcing Keshi on us. We have sat down with him and he has agreed to all terms that we put down and he is ready to work to lift the Super Eagles back to glorious days.”

Pinnick, who is currently out of the country,said Keshi’s new contract will definitely be signed early this week.
