“Talks over a new contract shouldn’t drag on,” Keshi told BBC Sport. “I can’t wait any more – the NFF is not serious.”
In a chat with the BBC Sports, Former Super Eagles Coaching, Stephen Keshi says “I have moved on. I can only wish the country well for the future.”
He added that;
“I’ve had about seven countries approach me in the last two months but I kept them all away.
There’s a game in two weeks (Nations Cup qualifier against Congo) but no-one is thinking about it and at the same time they expect you to win.
I understand the ongoing crisis facing the federation but the national team should not suffer from such at this crucial stage.
Sadly, I also think attention is focused more on the upcoming NFF elections and the national team is simply not a priority.
I love my country and I am aware of the dream our fans had of me taking this team to the next level.
While acknowledging the efforts of some people involved in the negotiation, I think others probably have other important things to do.”
Outside this, Keshi credits the fans and acknowledges their support of his efforts as coach. “I love my country and I am aware of the dream our fans had of me taking this team to the next level,”
