Stephen Keshi has revealed that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have offered to pay him five million Naira monthly, same amount he received during his initial three-year contract.
Keshi also said he has finally received a proposed new contract from the NFF.
Keshi exclusively told AfricanFootball.com: “I got a mail from the NFF late last night (Wednesday) with the contract.”
And even though Keshi was not forthcoming with details of the deal, the former Mali and Togo boss dismissed claims of a salary slash.
“I am still studying the contract but I can tell you that reports of a slash to my monthly take-home are not true,” he disclosed.
“The NFF have offered the same amount I was earning when I took the team to the World Cup in Brazil.”
Only this week, Keshi lost out in the race to coach Burkina Faso, who opted for German coach Gernot Rohr, previously of Niger and Gabon.
