Christian Chukwu, former Super Eagles coach, on Thursday, accused the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF and Stephen Keshi, Super Eagles coach, of holding Nigeria to ransom over the confusion that Keshi’s contract renewal has generated.
While urging the NFF and Keshi to stop holding Nigerians to ransom, Chuckwu said the NFF has to arrive at a decision over the issue.
“The federation knows what they want in a coach; they should just give Nigerians a coach for the team. The NFF and Keshi should stop holding Nigerians to ransom and arrive at a decision. I don’t know which of them is holding the other but something is hidden somewhere,” Chukwu said.
Chukwu said the forthcoming 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers has made it more expedient for the NFF to announce a new coach for the team so as to begin preparations in earnest.
“The AFCON qualifiers will soon begin and we have yet to begin any solid arrangement for the team. If the NFF wants Keshi, they should hire him and if they don’t want him, they should just let him go. What Nigerians want now is a new coach for the Super Eagles; they should announce somebody so that we can get over this,” he added.
The Super Eagles would be playing two international friendlies against Bolivia and Ghana before the commencement of the 2017 AFCON qualifiers.Follow Us on Social Media
