Keshi: Nigerian Coaches Must Unite


Super Eagles’ manager, Stephen Keshi has advisedNigerian coaches to unite, and charged the Golden Eaglets coaching crew to give the job their best shot.

Keshi said it is imperative that he rub minds with the coaches because of the importance attached to their assignment.

“I must confess to you that I really like the combination of coaches for the Golden Eaglets because they all played football locally and at the international level.

“It is important that we all work together to help the present poor situation of Nigerian football.

“The Under17 level is the foundation for the national team, and having this crop of coaches here means that our young players would be exposed to many things at this level.

“I would equally be involved with the age groups and it is essential that we all work together.”

“The main goal is not to win rather, it should be about development.

“I’m quite impressed that they have given everybody equal opportunity during the screening and we should give them maximum support because the work that is given to them is not an easy one,” Keshi stated.
