Keshi Defies NFF On Holidays



Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi is again on collision course with his employers after he flouted an order to stay back for a Presidential reception for the team.Top officials informed that Keshi was ordered to stay back for Thursday’s reception for the CHAN Eagles by President Goodluck Jonathan, but he still went ahead and flew out to the United States on holidays.

‘The Big Boss’ was conspicuously missing at the reception, where President Jonathan rewarded him with a cash gift of 1.5 million naira for leading the country to finish third at the 2014 CHAN in South Africa.

Keshi’s presence was also needed for Wednesday’s technical committee meeting in Abuja, where he was expected to defend his call-ups for next month’s World Cup warm-up against Mexico.He would later talk with the technical committee on phone from his house in the US.

“Keshi was clearly told to stay back for both the technical committee meeting and the Presidential reception, but he chose to fly out to the United states for holidays,” a top official informed

Keshi’s latest defiance comes at the height of a controversy that he has been asked by the Nigeria Football Federation to recommend an additional assistant. However, the NFF has denied this.

“We have faith in Keshi and we trust him. He is our coach for the World Cup,” said NFF president Aminu Maigari
