NFF still yet to seal Keshi’s fresh deal

11 February 2015, 13:19

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is expected to hand coach Stephen Keshi a new deal in a matter of days, SuperSport reports.

The football federation says it is still in talks with Keshi to tie the loose ends of the contract.

The NFF Technical and Development Committee has proposed to the federation's executive committee that Keshi's contract should be renewed.

Chairman of the technical and development committee, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, disclosed that the committee he chairs has "made recommendations to the (executive) board."

Anyansi-Agwu also believes that Keshi's return to the head coach role of the Super Eagles is the right decision since he is the only man considered for the position at the moment.

"The contract issue concerning Keshi has been discussed, and the decision now rests with the (executive) board (of the NFF) to take a decision. I don't think there's anything wrong with Keshi returning to his position since he is the only person considered for the job," said Anyansi-Agwu, who is also chairman of Enyimba.
