Lagos - A member of the Nigeria Football Federation Technical and Development Committee, Paul Bassey has said that the Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has nothing left to offer the national team, saying that his last five months with the team had not been productive.
Bassey, who is a Confederaions of African Football’s match commissioner explained that it would be expedient for the NFF to replace the 2013 African coach of the year.
Bassey also suggested that Keshi’s failure with the team was about his choice of a poor collection of players without the quality to carry the team as well as the ‘bad chemistry’ Keshi imbued in the squad.

“A lot of Nigerians say Keshi is the best thing that’s happened to Nigeria football, But with due respect to him, a Manager is as good as his last match.”
“If the Federation disassociates itself from Keshi today, it’ll not be because he’s a bad coach but so much is fundamentally wrong with the team,”
“The chemistry of the team and the quality of the boys he put together was totally defective. We need a change and with Keshi in the last 5 months there’s need to alter how things are done,” Bassey said.
