Keshi craves more support for Eagles

17 June 2015, 10:11

Abuja - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi says he hopes to get more support when they play their next home game in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The 'Big Boss' was full of praise for the Kaduna fans, as they filled the Ahmadu Bello Stadium last Saturday and cheered non-stop as the Eagles beat Chad 2-0 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

And he says he would love to see more of the kind of support they got in Kaduna wherever they play in the country.

"The support was good and I have to thank the Kaduna fans for always showing us love," he said.

"Whenever we have played in Kaduna, the fans have been great and I thank them.

"They always support us from the beginning to the end and I hope we can get such support when we play elsewhere.

"This is a new team and the players need the support of the fans to encourage them. This team belongs to us all and it will be good if we can get this kind of support wherever we play or even better.

"We hope it will continue this way and we continue to improve as a team," Keshi posited.

The 53-year old also thanked the media for their support leading up to the game.

"I also have to thank you guys (media) for your support this time. This is the first time in a while that the media just allowed the team to flow.

"I appreciate it and I hope we can keep this relationship because this is our national team and we must work together to make it work," he added.
