Keshi, NFF May Clash Over Team Selection, Bonus Crisis

03

THE face-off between the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Super Eagles’ Coach, Stephen Keshi, could be reignited when the African Nations Cup winning coach meets with his employers this weekend.

The NFF allegedly hold Keshi responsible for mishandling the bonus issue when it came up shortly before the team left for the Brazil 2013 Confederations Cup. They also accuse the ‘Big Boss’ of taking mediocre players to the Brazil 2013 Confederations Cup, and have decided to vet the sort of players invited to the team henceforth.
