Where my Money: Stephen Keshi still waiting on salary

share on:
The Nigerian Football Federation have confirmed Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has not been paid for the past five months.

Having steered his side to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations title in mid-February, Keshi is still waiting on his wages for the months that have followed.

This is the second time the 51-year-old has been made to wait by the country’s football association, after the NFF admitted that it owed Keshi two months’ salary prior to the 2013 AFCON in South Africa.

However, a spokesman for the governing body insists there is no real cause for concern as they are doing all they can to settle the debt.

NFF general secretary general Musa Amadu said: “Between the federation and the coaching crew, we don’t have a problem.

“We’ve been working together with Stephen Keshi since November 2011 and he knows the peculiar situation [financial problems] of how things are with the federation.

“We try as much as possible to pay our obligations, likewise the coach, and we’ve had a very good working relationship.

“I know the coach will not bring to the fore any such matters.”
