Stephen Keshi Resigns As Coach of Super Eagles


Just one day after leading Nigeria to their first African Cup in 19 years, word is reaching us that Stephen Keshi has retired. He won the title on Sunday night after beating Burkina Faso 1-0

The coach’s future had been subject to speculation throughout the tournament, and he has now revealed that he gave the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) his notice shortly after the 1-0 final win over Burkina Faso.

“I did what I feel is right by resigning,” Keshi told Metro FM. “I gave the NFF a letter last night [Sunday] after the celebrations.”

The 51-year-old Keshi made 51 appearances for the Super Eagles as a player, and he has held coaching posts with the Togolese and Malian national teams. With Keshi stepping down, someone else will be charged with leading Nigeria at this summer’s FIFA Confederations Cup, a tournament for which Nigeria qualified by virtue of winning the Cup of Nations.

  1. Bonjour Mr keshi,
    Je suis avec beaucoup d’intérêts vos performances avec Green Eagles, je vous souhaite beaucoup de chances et de bonheurs pour la coupes du monde. Nous prions pour que le tirage au sort vous soit favorable. Je ne manque pas de vous féliciter pour la coupe d’Afrique des Nations 2013 que vous avez gagné à Johannesburg. Je voudrais vous rappeler une idée qui vous est chère qu’on a souvent discuté ensemble à Lomé, c’est en effet celle de la valorisation des compétences des entraîneurs Africains, je profite pour vous suggérer la mise en place de l’Association Africaine des Entraîneurs de Football.
    Une prompte réponse m’obligerait .
