Tough time awaits Keshi

08 April 2014, 12:53

Abuja - Members of the Nigeria Football Federation’s Technical Committee have grudgingly agreed to attend their rescheduled meeting with Stephen Keshi later this month, but the coach can expect to be given no quarters.
The original meeting on March 26 had to be called off after when Keshi begged off, citing flight difficulties from the USA.
The meeting was then rescheduled for April 8, but members were enraged to find that the coach was attending an event in Lagos instead and threatened to boycott the new date.
NFF President Aminu Maigari and Technical Committee chairman Chris Green were forced to proceed on a fence-mending exercise after the meeting was rescheduled for a new date of April 22.
The reconciliatory moves appear to have borne fruit, with majority of the aggrieved members confirming their attendance.
But the trade-off is that Keshi is expected to face a tough and grueling time over his World Cup squad selection policy, with many member unconvinced about his reasons for excluding some players.
Where he was expected to have been given a pass, the perceived ‘disrespect’ of March 26 is not expected to pass without consequences.
