President of Nigeria Football Federation, Aminu Maigari, has advised Chief Coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi not to have a deal with SuperSport during the Africa Cup of Nations, which starts later this month in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.
Keshi will be a guest analyst with SuperSport during the Nations Cup with the job of analysing matches in the tourney. Speaking on Radio Nigeria on Monday, NFF boss said that he was not comfortable with Keshi be a match analyst during the Nations Cup when he should concentrate on the preparation of his team for the 2013 Nations Cup qualifying match against Rwanda.
“We have a crucial Nations Cup qualifier against Rwanda in Kigali on 29 February. I wonder why our Chief Coach, Keshi would be analysing matches on SuperSport when he should concentrate on the preparation of his team ahead of the qualifying match against Rwanda,â€ he said.
Maigari warned Keshi that there would be no excuse for him if he fails as Nigerians are still angry over the failure of the Eagles to qualify for this year’s Nations Cup.
