Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, on Friday said he was ready to continue coaching the Super Eagles if his contract with the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) was extended.

Keshi told newsmen in Abuja that he would love to finish what he started with the team if given the opportunity.

“Although I have not spoken with the NFA yet, I am out of contract now and I need to move ahead.

“I have spent two and a half years in Nigeria and I love Nigeria, it is my country and the national team is in my blood.

“ If I meet with the NFA and we agree to the conditions in a new contract, there is no problem.

“There are many countries like South Africa that are seeking my service; but I will give priority to Nigeria if we agree because I will love to finish what I started if everything goes on well.

“But if not, I will like to move my train to somewhere else because it is always a good experience when you go out there and try something else’’, Keshi said.

He expressed optimism that the Super Eagles would be a team to reckon with in few years to come if the players were kept intact.

“There is a lot of potential in the team because they are players, who, in the next three to four years, Nigerians should be proud of.

“But that is if we continue with this group of players with some additional ones’’, Keshi said
