Keshi withdraws resignation



Stephen Keshi will remain as head coach of Nigeria after the intervention of the nation's sports minister, Bolaji Abdullahi in his row with the football federation.

Keshi's row with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) led to the 51-year-old coach announcing on South African radio, Metro FM, on Monday that he told federation he will no longer continue as the Super Eagles' head coach.

But the sports minister, who also chairs the Nigerian National Sports Commission (NSC), prevailed on the former Mali and Togo coach to withdraw his resignation.

A source in the Nigerian camp revealed that Keshi and the minister met on Monday in Johannesburg and the coach has promised to continue as Super Eagles' coach.

"He has agreed to withdraw his resignation after a meeting with the sports minister. So he will remain as the coach of the Super Eagles," supersport.com was informed.

"But what Keshi and the minister discussed I really don't know though I'm sure Keshi must have been given some assurances by the minister concerning his complaints."

Supersport.com has also been informed that talks to broker peace between Keshi and the football federation will continue when the Nigerian team arrive in Abuja on Tuesday.
