Keshi dares NFF to fire him

23 June 2015, 10:20

Abuja - Embattled Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has advised the Nigeria Football Federation to offer the Super Eagles job to another coach if they no longer want his services, instead of ‘spoiling my name’.
The ‘Big Boss’ is set to appear before the NFF Disciplinary Committee today after the Ivorian Football Federation claimed he had applied to coach their senior men’s national team, a development which has forced the Glass House to summon him before its Disciplinary Committee.
But speaking ahead of the hearing, Keshi said he would speak to the committee first before making more comments, but says he is tired of the whole issue.
“I have to talk to them (disciplinary committee) first,” he was quoted on Brila FM.

“When I get there I will talk to them and when I finish talking to them, then I’ll know what to say but I’m tired of all these.
“Every time ‘Keshi do this Keshi do that’, if they want to give the job to somebody else they are planning to, let them do it instead of spoiling my name up and down.
“If they want to give the job to somebody else that’s fine but not spoiling my name up and down that I did this or I didn’t do that.

“Let them give the job to somebody else, it is not the end of the world,” Keshi posited.
