Abuja - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has charged the Nigeria Football Federation to change from listening to ‘little gossip’, after claims by his manager that some ‘enemies of peace’ have been trying to ‘cause distractions’ for him.
The embattled 53-year old appeared before the NFF Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday, after his name was published as one of the coaches that ‘applied’ to coach the Cote D’ Ivoire senior national team, The Elephants.
But Keshi is remaining calm, and says all they should concentrate upon at the moment is the next Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania in September.

“We need to change from all these little gossip and all that and forge a very formidable team,” he told News24.
“We all should be thinking of how we will prepare for the game against Tanzania and that should be our mission right now and not what somebody said or didn’t say, we don’t need that.
“We need to forge a new team so that we can conquer the world and Africa again and we can do it but we have to do it together,” Keshi said. The ‘Big Boss’ went on to state that he remains committed to the Super Eagles.
“I am committed to the Super Eagles, I am,” he added.
