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,
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.
