Onigbinde says NFF may have breached contract with Keshi

07 July 2015, 15:03

Lagos - Former Super Eagles coach Adegboye Onigbinde says the Nigeria Football Federation, rather than Stephen Keshi, will be in breach of contract if it is not stipulated in their agreement that the ‘Big Boss’ will be in violation if he seeks for another job whilst still being employed by the NFF.

Onigbinde, a former CAF and FIFA technical instructor, has been reacting to Stephen Keshi’s sack as the Super Eagles coach by the NFF and says the Glass House may have been the ones in violation of their contract with Keshi.

“I may be right or wrong but the assumption is that they (NFF) must have followed the contents of the contract before taking that decision,” Onigbinde said.

“And somebody may assure me that there is a clause in the contract which forbids him (Keshi) from applying for another job while he is on that job, but I don’t know because I don’t have a copy of the contract.

“I believe the NFF must have studied the contents of the contract, but if that is not stipulated in the contract, then they (NFF) have breached the contract,” Onigbinde added.

The last seems not to have been heard of the issue, as different reactions continue to greet the second sack the present board of the NFF will hand to Keshi.
