“I was NEVER sacked by the NFF!”- Stephen Keshi

As against the news that rocked the media few
days back, immediate former Head Coach of the
Super Eagles, Mr. Stephen Keshi, has said he was
not sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation.


Keshi who spoke with newsmen while at the Kwara
State stadium yesterday during the final of the 28th
edition of the All Financial Institutions Football
competition explained that his contract with the NFF
ended with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, making it
inappropriate for anyone to say he was sacked.

Keshi being an optimistic leader made it known that
the Super Eagles could still qualify for the African
Cup of Nations if the team really work hard at it.

According to Punch, he said:
“I was never sacked by the NFF. It’s if you have an
existing contract that you would be sacked. Super
Eagles can still qualify for the 2015 AFCON. They
have the chance, because the group is still open.
They only need to work harder. “We need a lot of
encouragement from Nigerians for the players to go
ahead and qualify. I think we can qualify for the
2015 AFCON,” he said.

Nigeria is currently occupying the third position of
Group A with four points, trailing Congo with seven
points and South Africa leading the group with eight
points while Sudan places last with three points.

Nigeria will play away to Congo on November 14,
and tackle group leader, the Bafana Bafana of South
Africa on November 19.
Meanwhile, First Bank of Nigeria defeated Central
Bank of Nigeria by a lone goal to win the 28th
edition of the All Financial Institutions Football
competition organised by the NFF and CBN.
