Keshi’s future is in doubt after he announced his resignation as coach of the national team last week following Nigeria’s elimination from the World Cup,citing bad working conditions with the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) as a factor.
According to sources report, Keshi met with President Goodluck Jonathan and outlined his demands if he were to return to coach the Super Eagles.
“He (Keshi) demanded for N10m a month, which he wants to be paid upfront to check any delays,” an official was quoted as saying.
“He also wanted what he called a free hand as regards his team selection and preparations, saying he no longer wishes to deal with the technical committee.He also wanted Okpalla back to his backroom staff.
“The President has assured him that his demands will be considered.”
Only on Monday,the South African Football Association (SAFA) distanced themselves from having offered Keshi a contract,so it could be that his viable option would be to retain his job with Nigeria.
