Keshi returns as Super Eagles coach?

30 October 2014, 10:15Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Reports on Thursday suggest that sacked Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has returned as the coach of the team after he was replaced with Shuaibu Amodu two weeks ago.

Keshi was not able to keep his job after leading Nigeria to four points from four games in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The Amaju Pinnick-led Nigeria Football Federation replaced the former captain with former coach Amodu who was reported to have resumed duty.

But the new media officer of the Super Eagles Toyin Ibitoye twitted on Thursday that Keshi has returned to continue with his job.

@ToyinIbitoye: “Keshi Returns as @NGSuperEagles Coach.”

The report is yet to be officially confirmed as effort by News24 Nigeria to reach top officials proved abortive.

Factional leader of the NFF, Chris Giwa has also insisted that keshi remains the coach of the team, even as the crisis rocking Nigeria football leadership lingers on.

If Keshi returns, Ibitoye may as well lose his place as media officer of the team, as Keshi has been working with Ben Alaiya since 2011.
