Stephen Keshi has been appointed Nigeria coach for the third time after signing a two-year contract on Tuesday.
“It’s a fresh start. We need the support of our fans, media and every Nigerian to return the team to where we truly belong,” Keshi told BBC Sport.
“As a coach and former player I was also hurt that we failed to qualify for the last Nations Cup.
“To succeed we all need to come together as one because Nigeria belongs to us, this is not Stephen Keshi’s team but our national team.”
