Green Faults Ivoirian Federation over Keshi

27 June 2015, 14:44Soccer Laduma

Lagos - Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation’s Disciplinary Committee, Christopher Green has said the Ivoirian Football Federation should have reached out to the NFF before shortlisting the Super Eagles coach as one of the candidates to coach their senior national team.
Green, also a member of the NFF Executive Committee, added that Stephen Keshi must respect his employers as he is under contract.

“The practice is very simple,” he began, “Even for players, for as long as you have a contract, you must respect your employers,” Green said of Keshi.

“And if you (Cote D’ Ivoire) want to talk to a coach, you have to obtain permission from the team before you are allowed to talk to the coach,” Green said of the Ivoirian Football Federation.

The NFF are yet to say what their next line of action will be if Keshi is found ‘guilty’ of applying to coach the Elephants of Cote D’ Ivoire, but feelers from the Glass House has it that they may show the 53-year old former Super Eagles captain the door.
Green had earlier told News24 they are ‘investigating’ Keshi, after the Ivoirian Football Federation listed him as one of the applicants to replace Herve Renard as coach of the Elephants.
