Head coach of the Nigerian
national team, Stephen Keshi has
moved to explain the reasons
behind his declarations that he
may leave his post after the
2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. The ‘Big Boss’ shocked the
football world while making the
announcement at a press
conference in Durban on Tuesday
but he has now moved to explain
his comments. “It doesn’t really matter what
people think about what
Stephen Keshi is doing. The most
important thing is what I am
doing here and passing on to my
team. If back home in my country, they don’t appreciate
what I am doing with the team,
so be it,” Keshi explained. It was widely reported that
Keshi fell out with top officials of
the Nigeria Football Federation
(NFF) following the Super Eagles’
1-1 draw against Burkina Faso in
their opening game of the competition with the former
national team captain
threatening to walk out on the
team. Keshi also hinted in a thinly-
veiled remark that there is no
love lost with the NFF officials. “You can’t force somebody to
love you. You can’t force
somebody to accept you. It has
to come from within,” he stated. Following his 10-year coaching
career that has seen him
manage the Togo and Mali
national sides, Keshi stressed
that he could be on the move
from his current post after the 2013 Afcon. “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. “This is where my heart is, I
captained the Super Eagles for
14 years. I have been here as
assistant coach. I am here for
now but after the tournament,
we will see if there is any (offer) out there,” he concluded. More News
