Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi is not comfortable with Garba Lawal as team co-ordinator and wants him replaced.
A critic of Stephen Keshi handling of the Nigeria national team Garba Lawal was appointed team co-ordinator after Amaju Pinnick board sacked Keshi.
However, in a dramatic twist of fate Keshi was re-instated as manager of the Super Eagles leaving Garba Lawal with a task of working with the man he once said destroyed the Super Eagles.
“Keshi is not the type to hold a grudge but I can tell you he wants Garba Lawal out,” a source told SL10.ng
“He is not asking for Emmanuel Attah to be re-appointed just anybody, not Garba Lawal who devoted all of his time working against the Keshi.”
The source accepted that Lawal is entitled to his opinion, but went too far with his recent statement discrediting Keshi the head of the team he is expected to coordinate.
“It’s accepted he has a right to his opinion but his latest statement on a team he is to coordinate prove he is going to be an unwanted influence,” added the source.
“The team coordinator job is for someone who believes in the team not one of a divisive opinion.”
Lawal was credited as saying he doesn’t care about Keshi returning as Coach and said he has no regret leading calls for his sack earlier.
