NFF accuses Keshi of insubordination

06 July 2015, 15:02

Abuja - Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation’s Disciplinary Committee and Executive Committee member of the NFF, Christopher Green has explained why they decided to fire the now former Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi.

Speaking in a radio interview, Green cited cases of insubordination and a possible breach of trust, as some of the reasons why they had to sack the former Nigeria captain.

“Keshi doesn’t act like an employee. He even acts like he’s the employer because he doesn’t want the technical committee to supervise the team, he doesn’t want the technical committee to do anything, does the team belong to him,” Green asked rather rhetorically.

Green, who has been at daggers-drawn for long, back to his days as the technical committee chairman of the immediate past board of the NFF, further accused Keshi of intending to walk away from his contract if he had been employed by the Ivoirian Football Federation or to use it to demand for a pay rise.

“He demanded N15m (monthly salary) from us, but when he discovered we wouldn’t give him that, he accepted the N5m we offered and that is why he’s doing all of this.

“If we hadn’t done what we have done, and the Ivoirians employed him, would he not have walked out on us? Or worse still, would he not have used it to negotiate for a pay rise?” Green added further.
