Stephen Keshi, former Super Eagles coach has denied reports that Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has offered him a N7 million monthly wage in a new contract due to take off.
And with the ouster of the former NFF president, Aminu Maigari last week, the acting president, Mike Umeh had mandated a three-man committee comprising Chris Green, Deji Tinubu and Felix Anyansi-Agwu to re-negotiate Keshi’s contract.
But when Newswatch Sports reached the coach on phone in US, he unequivocally denied discussing any contract with any Nigerian official either face-to-face or on phone. [eap_ad_2] “No! I have not discussed anything with anybody! I left Nigeria before the Sallah break. I didn’t speak with any of the committee members before I left and I haven’t spoken with any of them on the matter since then.
“It was only Deji Tinubu who said they want me to continue and I said fine, let them bring up their offer that I may see. That’s it. I don’t know where they came up with N7 million offer from. I am not aware of that,” Keshi told Newswatch Sports.
He was asked if the amount would be enough to convince him to continue with his job in Nigeria and he said: “Is that a proposal? If that is their proposal, then we need to sit down and talk, but I haven’t seen anything from them. I can’t discuss a contract I haven’t seen.”He also declined to say if the offers he had outside Nigeria are still available for him. “That’s for my personal consumption and not for you,” was his reply.
