Nigerian sports minister Tammy Danagogo has said the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will decide on whether or not to give coach Stephen Keshi a new contract.
Keshi’s contract ended with the recent World Cup in Brazil, where Nigeria reached the last 16 this month.
“My own role (as regards Keshi’s contract) will be advisory. It will be the NFF and the technical committee who will decide on Keshi,” Danagogo said on a radio programme monitored in Abuja Thursday.
The Super Eagles will resume action with the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in September.
AfricanFootball.com first reported that ‘Big Boss’ Keshi has demanded for double his five million Naira-a-month salary.
He also wanted his salaries paid upfront to avoid delays and that he should be allowed to pick his staff.
This was when he met with the country’s President Goodluck Jonathan on arrival from Brazil 2014.
The 52-year-old Keshi has also been linked with the vacant coaching post of South Africa.
