Former Super Eagles defender Taye Taiwo has called for the sack of head coach Stephen Keshi.
Taye Taiwo, who now plays for Buraspor in Turkey, likened Keshi’s failure to qualify for the African Nations Cup to Samson Siasia‘s failure in 2012, noting that Siasia was sacked right after.
Everybody in Nigeria knows that when Siasia did not qualify everybody from the media, the fans insisted that they have to sack him, so it is normal that when a coach does not qualify for the Nations Cup or the World Cup he is not allowed to stay on, I am sorry to say that; they have to sack him (Keshi),” Taiwo told Premium Times.
“Nigeria is not just for one person, if a coach does not qualify you for a competition why do you have to keep him?”
“Please don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with Keshi, Amokachi or even the NFF. The players that have been called are also doing fantastically well, everything is in the hands of Allah. If I get the chance to play for Nigeria I will, if not, life goes on,” he added.
