Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has denied applying for the vacant position of Ivory Coast’s head coach.
The Ivorian Football Federation had last week released a list of over 50 managers who had applied for the job, and Keshi’s name was included.
Following the revelation, the Nigerian Football Federation summoned Keshi yesterday to face its disciplinary committee.
Keshi was asked to explain exactly how his name had appeared on the list, but the former Togo coach, who renewed his contract with the Eagles, said he knows nothing about it.
“I did not apply for anything. I don’t know how it managed to get there.”
“I will appear before the committee to explain and there is no way it will deter me from serving my country or doing my job,” he said.
