The scramble for who takes over the position of Super Eagles coach has started after France kicked Eagles out of the Brazil World Cup.
Keshi had delivered a valedictory speech to his players at the dressing room in Brasilia after they were bundled out 2-0 by France to signal the rush for applications by many coaches who admire the glut of talents that abound in the Super Eagles.
According to Vanguard, an official of the Nigerian Football Federation who pleaded anonymity confirmed that they have been besieged by many interests from foreigners but said that it was too early for them to disclose the identities of such coaches since Keshi had not tendered his resignation letter to the body.
‘’Everything we have heard about his resignation is from the press. He has not informed us formally and as such, we still consider him as our coach.
Many coaches have expressed their interests in the job but we need to meet and review our performance in the World Cup and sundry issues. If he insists on resigning, definitely, his position will be taken over by someone else. But for now, he is still our coach”, one of the influential officials of the football house told Sports Vanguard here in Brazil.
Keshi yet again gave a hint that he was done with the Eagles job in an interview he granted TheCable and was asked if he has resigned; ‘’ Yes. I have done my bit. I am tired of all the intrigues and backbiting and insinuations I get”.
When asked if President Goodluck Jonathan intervenes and sort things out like he did after the Africa Cup of Nations, Keshi said: ‘’As much as I respect and appreciate the number one citizen of the country I am afraid that this time it is going to be difficult. I am totally done with some of these people”.
