Keshi rejects NFF ‘slave contract’

02 March 2015, 12:49

Lagos - Stephen Keshi will not be accepting any new contract from the Nigerian Football Federation, according to the coach's representative.

The NFF recently compiled a new offer for Keshi to continue in the Super Eagles hotseat, although his agent, Emma Addo, has described the new deal as nothing short of a "slave contract".

"Keshi won't sign, Nigeria can start looking for another coach. Is that a contract or slavery? How can the NFF even come up with such idea," Addo told SL10.ng.

"For all Keshi did for Nigeria there are better ways of releasing him, surely not this way. I repeat, he won't sign the NFF slave contract, he is not as hungry or jobless as they think."

The agent added: "Keshi belongs to the league of few indigenous coaches in Africa who are highly respected and sort after, The NFF wasted his time but now that they are no longer an option, I assure you in a few days' time, my client will be employed."
