Lagos - Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has dedicated his award to assistant coaches, Daniel Amokachi, Ike Shorunmu and other backroom staff of the team.

Keshi was announced the Coach of the Year ahead of Burkina Faso’s Paul Put and Golden Eaglets’ Manu Garba at the 2013 Glo CAF Awards held in Lagos on Thursday.

The gaffer who led Nigeria to win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa said he dedicates the prize to those behind the scene of his success.
