NFF Saga: Amodu Out As Stephen Keshi Returns As Super Eagles Head Coach

share on:

Sacked coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi has returned to the team ahead of next month’s Nations Cup qualifiers.

Toyin Ibitoye, the media officer of the Super Eagles, made the announcement on Thursday morning via Twitter.

The move was reportedly orchestrated by President Goodluck Jonathan, who doesn’t want the nation to get banned by FIFA.

President Jonathan is also said to have asked the faction of Chris Giwa to withdraw its case from court.

Keshi was relieved of his job on October 16, a day after the Super Eagles defeated Sudan 3-1 in Abuja, by the Amaju Pinnick-led board of the NFF who re-called former coach Shaibu Amodu in an interim capacity.

The African champions had struggled to win just one in four qualifying matches and fans had begun to call for the coach’s sack.
