Khartoum - Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi was again livid with rage when he read reports credited to him to the effect that he has shut the Super Eagles door permanently against Villareal of Spain striker, Ikechukwu Uche.
Clarifying what he said at Wednesday’s media parley in Abuja, Keshi said for the umpteenth time what he said was that he will not beg Uche to play for Nigeria, especially when there are other players who are willing and ready at all times to play for the Super Eagles.
“I don’t know where they got that portion of their reports from, but I never said Uche won’t play as long as I remain coach of the team. In the near future if he changes his mind and indicates interest to play he will be considered on merit.”

He urged the media not to sensationalise the Ike Uche issue as it will not help resolve anything.
“We have to help all our players grow so that we can all build a strong national team and the media is a partner in this regard.” He said he does not have anything personal against the Villareal striker but will not force to play for Nigeria against his will.
