Keshi Confirms Burkina-Faso Job Offer!

–As NFF offer Big Boss 2-year deal

Out-of-contract Super Eagles head coach,Stephen Keshi has confirmed reports he has been approached by the Burkina Faso Football Federation (Fédération Burkinabé de Foot-Ball,FBF) to replace former Les Étalons (The Stallions) manager Paul Put, who was fired in the aftermaths of Burkina Faso first round exit at the Africa Cup of Nations Equatorial Guinea 2015.

The 2013 AFCON runners-up only managed a single point in their Group A, losing 0-2 to Gabon before securing a goalless draw against Equatorial Guinea and suffering another 1-2 defeat to Congo.

FBF president,Colonel Sita Sangaré had early this week revealed at a press conference that Keshi is among several high profile coaches who have applied for the vacant post.He listed Frenchmen Claude Le Roy and Alain Giresse who took Congo and Senegal respectively to the Africa Cup of Nations which ended last Sunday in Equatorial Guinea.


Sangaré added that a 3-candidate shortlist will be announced on Monday, 16 February, with a final decision to be taken within the next three weeks.

Former France coach Jacques Santini and former Gabon and Niger boss Gernot Rohr also joined the race.

‘Yes,I was approached by the FBF for the vacant position but I have not decided yet on the right direction to take,”said Keshi via a telephone conversation.

Meanwhile Complete Sports has scooped that Keshi has been offered a two-year deal by the Nigeria Football Federation with a reduced salary.He earned N5m a month in his previous contract but the NFF,according to our impeccable source in Abuja caanot afford to pay the big boss the same amount because of its dwindling fortunes due to the unfavourable economic climate plauging the country ocassioned by the austerity measures introduced by the Federal Government following the drop in the price of crude oil in the international market.

    I wish all these internet coaches be quite.
    All you all want is a coach you can toss around,
    but sorry that is why he is called the Big Boss.

  • Coach of Bukino Faso? Its a small country with a small economy. Even with a reduced salary take the NFF offer. Let the excitement begin again!!!!! Will Keshi second coming be exciting again, action packef? Journalist will have a field day. We don’t want a NFF yes man. We need a full Nigerian blood. No dull moment. As someone said ‘even Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson will find NFF and NIGERIAN football difficult to master and be successful.’ Keshi you are welcome in advance.

  • chinedu 8 years ago

    but i want to ask?
    where did he get coaching certificate
    we don’t even need any ex-nigerians player to coach us anymore.
    why any one retired from football he will come and ask for eagle job?
    but other frican is not so. is not composary ex- player must coach eagle
    look at ghana coté voire. algeria and others is not their players coaching them
    are they a fool?

  • what are you talking about when formal coach of Ghana took them to the world cup Brazil 2014 he was the formal Ghanian player now so if indigineous coach can do the job let them go and head.

    You people have started again. Where are the Keshi’s United today? They are no where to be found. However, NFF have been given coach Keshi a chance for a while but nothing have changed. If the NFF eventually renewed his contract, I swear to God almighty that the big boss will never deliver because he has failed and loosing his respect from Nigerians both home and abroad. Only the President Jonathan Goodluck is behind him now. Politics, eh? Keshi have tried his best and we appreciate him and may almighty God bless him. We have to move on from now on because Keshi left nothing to build on. And Nation Cup qualifies is around the corner now, no time to waste. We need a sound indigenous coach not a foreign coach. If I were NFF, I will ask Manu Garba, Emmuel Amunike and co to be the Eagles coach. Not because they won the Under17 in Dubai but the played total football. Therefore, What else do you guys think keshi still have to offer Eagles that he has never tried? Name it guys? You guys are funny laughs. The current NFF knows what to do but just because of the President, they really scared to make a right decision on Keshi. We need to be patient and be honest to our selves if we don’t wan’t the same scenario that happens in the 2014 Nations qualifiers to repeats itself in 2017 Afcon. Long story short,the truth is bitter. God bless Nigeria!
