Abuja - Malawi coach Tom Saintfliet has said he is shocked by Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi’s vitriolic reaction to Malawi’s request for a venue change for a crucial World Cup qualifier.
Keshi referred to Saintfiet as a “white dude” who should go back to Belgium in an interview with VoxAfrica TV after hearing Malawi wrote to FIFA to have the match moved from Calabar for security reasons.
"First of all I am naturally very disappointed and a little bit shocked at the words used by Mr Keshi," Saintfiet said.
“It was never me as a person who wrote to FIFA to request the change of venue, it was my football association. I only communicated that to the media,” he added.
"But in all cases, it doesn’t give the right to any coach to react in that manner and use the words that Mr Keshi did.”
