Ahmadu clueless in Keshi saga



The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has denied reports that Stephen Keshi has resigned as head coach of the Nigeria national team.

Keshi has endured a frosty relationship with members of the NFF with the ‘Big Boss’ threatening to walk out on the Super Eagles during the course of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Keshi told top South African Radio/Television host, Robert Marawa during a sports radio show in an FM station, Metro FM on Monday that he had quit his job as Nigeria’s football coach.

“Stephen Keshi has just announced that he handed over his resignation letter after the game exclusively on 083Sport@6With https://twitter.com/6With * **Marawa* on MetroFM,” Marawa tweeted via his twitter account, @robertmarawa on Monday evening.

When supersport.com sought the views of the general secretary of the NFF Musa Ahmadu to ascertain if the Federation had received an official resignation letter from Keshi, he replied with expletives.

“What kind of stupid question is that? It is stupid for anyone to ask such a question,” Ahmadu said angrily.

Efforts to reach other members of the NFF via the telephone proved abortive as they failed to take their calls.

Keshi’s decision to quit does not really come as a surprise for close followers of Nigerian football as the former Mali and Togo coach had threatened to quit just over a week ago.

“We are all professionals. If God grants me (the Afcon title with Nigeria today), the very next day, I might pack my things and leave for another country.

“It is the same thing with (Jose) Mourinho and all the other top coaches in the world. I could stay on and I could leave. It depends on the situation.

“I am a professional and we will see how it goes,” Keshi said.
