Keshi dumps Eagles, signs two-year deal with South Africa




Meanwhile, The Eagle Online further
gathered that at least 10 top European
coaches are already eyeing Keshi’s job


The Super Eagles Manager, Stephen Keshi,
has landed a mouthwatering two-year deal
with the South African Soccer Federation to
take over the coaching job of the country’s
senior national team, the Bafana Bafana,
immediately after the ongoing Brazil 2014
World Cup.
The Eagle Online gathered that Keshi would
cease to be the Super Eagles manager after
the Mundial, since he has accepted to take
the offer from South Africa.
According to our source, the Big Boss
would head to Johannesburg straight from
Brazil to sign the dotted lines and be
unveiled by the South Africans once he is
through with the World Cup assignment.
It would be noted had South Africa had last
month sacked the Bafana Bafana manager,
Gordon Igesund, after their friendly against
Australia.
A source said: “I can confirm to you that
the deal between Keshi and SAFA has been
signed and sealed.
“He is going to South Africa immediately
after the World Cup.
“The South Africans are impressed with
what he has done with the Eagles and want
him to turn around the fortunes of Bafana
Bafana.”
Meanwhile, The Eagle Online further
gathered that at least 10 top European
coaches are already eyeing Keshi’s job.
Agents of the coaches have submitted their
CVs to the Nigeria Football Federation
officials.
It is not yet clear if the NFF would settle for
a foreign manager to take over from Keshi
or appoint another indigenous coach.
With the qualifiers for the 2015 Nations Cup
in Morocco set to begin in September, the
NFF does not have the luxury of time.
Our source stated that the NFF will take a
decision on who takes over from Keshi
immediately after the World Cup.
Keshi’s first assignment for South Africa
would be against the Super Eagles as South
Africa and Nigeria have been drawn into the
same group in the race to Morocco 2015.
