Keshi applies to coach Cote D’Ivoire

20 June 2015, 21:14

Abuja - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has applied to be the next coach of the Ivorian senior men’s national team, The Elephants, a statement from the Ivoirian Football Federation claims.

The 53-year old Keshi, who is currently contracted to the Nigeria Football Federation and is presently in charge of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, is listed amongst 58 other coaches that have applied for the vacant position.

Frenchman Herve Renard was in charge of the Elephants, and led them to victory at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, before joining French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille.

And the Ivoirian Football Federation, who are hunting for a replacement for the departed Renard, says 59 coaches from across the world have applied for the job, including Nigeria’s Stephen Keshi.

“After the submission of application files set for 15 June 2015, 59 applicants have indicated their intentions to the Ivorian Football Federation (FIF),” the statement read in part.

It comes as a surprise seeing that Keshi only signed a new two-year contract with the Nigeria Football Federation in April, and has only taken charge of the team for one game since he signed the new contract.

Efforts to reach the ‘Big Boss’ or the Nigeria Football Federation for comments on the subject have so far proved abortive.

The name of the next Coach for the Elephants will be known between late June and early July
