The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) plan to offer coach Stephen Keshi an improved deal that will pay him seven million Naira a month (over $43,000), according to AfricanFootball.com
This plan comes amid confusion whether or not Keshi has quit his post. According to the website, the NFF also have a plan B to hire a foreign coach to be assisted by a local man and this would be if Keshi turned down the new contract tabled by his employers.
Keshi was hired on a N5m a month salary in late 2011 following the sacking of Samson Siasia after he failed to qualify Nigeria for the African Nations Cup in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, the first time since 1986.
In two years Keshi became the first Nigerian coach to win the African Nations Cup title, the first to start the qualification process and qualify Nigeria for the FIFA World Cup as well as the first Nigerian to lead the Eagles to the second round at the FIFA World Cup
