The Nigerian Football Federation has stated they are giving Stephen Keshi a March 6 deadline to respond to the contract he has been offered lose the contract.
The Federation is determined to announce a coach for the national team by next week. Sources say the Federation is upset with Keshi for stalling so far. A member of the executive committee had this to say to Complete Sports:
“Keshi is expected to tell us whether he agrees with the contract offer or not. If he has anything against the contract given him and we make necessary adjustment so that that we know if we have a contract or not. We are sick and tired of Keshi talking to us on the pages of newspapers or on radio. Let him tell us what he does not like in the contract so that we can move on. If he does not want the job, he should let us know so that we take the next line of action.”
Sources also say the NFF may discontinue any further discussion with Keshi if he does not meet the deadline.
