“Resignations are not done on the pages of newspapers but formally” – Keshi

share on:

Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, has said his widely reported resignation from the job may have been a case of misunderstood speech he made to the players in the dressing room after the 0-2 loss to France in the second round of the ongoing World Cup in Brazil.

 This, however, runs contrary to Keshis position on his Twitter handle shortly after the match against France. On his Twitter handle, Keshi had said late on Monday that it was time to move on. However, it reports indicate that the Twitter account is being run by an imposter.

On Tuesday, Keshi said: What I said to my players was that this maybe my last match at the helm of affairs in the national team, because my contract terminates with the World Cup and I have not been offered a new one.

I was a bit shocked that the global media went to town to say I have called it quits with the national team. Resignations are not done on the pages of newspapers but formally.
