I Will Renew My Contract with Eagles if I Get N10m-a-Month – Keshi
Shortly after the exit of the Super Eagles at the ongoing 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Coach Stephen Keshi announced that his contract with the Super Eagles has come to an end.
Although, the contract ended with the 2-0 defeat by France at the World Cup, Keshi amongst other issues stated that the lack of respect from the Nigerian Football Federation will make it impossible for him to coach the eagles again.
However, latest report has it that Keshi is ready to renew his contract with a demand of a significant salary hike to sign a new contract to remain as Nigeria coach.
According to africanfootball.com on Tuesday, Keshi told President Goodluck Jonathan that he will sign a new deal if the NFF agrees to pay him N10m a month. The former Nigeria captain received N5m a month in his initial contract.
Africanfootball.com reported that Keshi made the demand when he met with Jonathan at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja on arrival from the World Cup in Brazil. He was also said to have demanded that his new salary be paid upfront to avoid the delays he suffered in the previous deal, as well as the recall of his former assistant Sylvanus Okpalla.
A top official at the Presidential Villa told africanfootball.com, “He (Keshi) demanded for N10m a month, which he wants to be paid upfront to check any delays.
“He also wanted what he called a free hand as regards his team selection and preparations, saying he no longer wishes to deal with the technical committee.He also wanted Okpalla back to his backroom staff.
“The President has assured him that his demands will be considered.”
