Former Super Eagles coach Christian Chukwu has told Stephen Keshi not to bother trying to retain the Nigerian national team coaching role.
Keshi, who won the African Cup of Nations as both a player and a coach, was axed during Nigeria’s 2015 AFCON qualifying campaign. He was subsequently recalled, but was unable to steer his country to a place in Equatorial Guinea next month.
Keshi is currently in limbo in terms of making the position a permanent one, but former coach Chukwu has advised him to seek new pastures rather than wait for the Nigerian Football Federation to come to a decision.
“Well, my candid advice to Keshi, you know with all this problems in the NFF, it will take a long time for the association to sit and start deciding anything about the technical crew, I think if he has a better offer anywhere he is free to go and his contract will be respected more outside the country because I am talking out of experience,” Chukwu was reported as saying by Megasport.
