Coach Stephen Keshi Resigns
SAN FRANCISCO, February 11, (THEWILL) – Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi has surprisingly resigned after leading Nigeria to clinch the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
One source close to the coach told THEWILL that he decided to resign before the cup final match against Burkina Faso on Sunday.
“Keshi sent his letter of resignation to the football federation following the ill treatment he had suffered from the bosses at the football federation who never gave him a chance to succeed,” the source said.
Keshi Monday told a South African state-run radio station, SABC that he forwarded his letter of resignation “immediately after the final.”
“I gave the national football federation my letter of resignation immediately after the final, but I have not heard from them,” he said.
