3rd December, 2014
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has stated that no deal has been agreed with out-of-contract Super Eagles head coach Stephen Keshi.
There have been reports suggesting that the football federation has offered Keshi an improved contract reportedly worth N84 million per annum.
The reports also stated that Keshi will be handed a new contract for a year starting from January 2015 and will run till December of the same year.
But NFF president Amaju Pinnick has tactfully played down the reports of a new improved contract offered to Keshi.
Pinnick said about the new N7 million-a-month deal to Keshi: “At the moment, we have not come to that yet.”
Keshi’s representative, Emmanuel Addo, at the weekend had told supersport.com via text messaging that reports of the new deal to Keshi were “not true.” “The reports are not true. Where did you pick that from? Let’s wait and see,” Addo stated.
Keshi has been out of contract since July when the Fifa World Cup ended.
The Big Boss, as he is nicknamed, previously earned N5 million during his first reign as Nigeria head coach between November 2011 and July 2013.
