Stephen Keshi believes the Super Eagles‘ problems are much more than a managerial change.
“If a team fails, sacking the coach won’t solve the problem. The authority should look beyond the coach to find solutions to the problem,” Keshi said.
Keshi, who has been working without a contract since the expiration of his last deal after the World Cup, admitted that failure to qualify for next year AFCON is failure on his part.
“I can’t deny it is a shame that we failed to qualify,on my part I failed the Nation but my players took South Africa for granted,a match they need to win.”
His agent Emma Addo was however silent on his client future but echoed Keshi’s sentiment that the problem of the team goes beyond the coach.
“No explanation will be acceptable now by Nigerians but Super Eagles problems goes beyond coaching,if some issues are not resolved no can succeed for long with the team,” Addo added.
“We shouldn’t forget where Keshi picked this team from in 2012, almost same place like they are now but nobody cared about how they got there, that is why it happened again.”
