Stephen Keshi denied signing on as Nigeria coach once more, amid a tumultuous period for the country’s football federation.
Nigerian football is coach-less and president-less, after Aminu Maigari tendered his resignation from the Nigerian Football Federation on Wednesday.
Keshi remains in talks to rejoin the nation he took to the round-of-16 at the World Cup in Brazil, after resigning following their exit.
A spokesperson for the 52-year-old revealed no deal had been made with the NFF.
“We have the draft contract from the federation and we expect to enter into negotiations. I want to state that contracts are not done on take it or leave it basis. It is not a master servant – servant type of relationship,” the spokesperson said.
“While Keshi appreciates the confidence reposed in him by the federation to continue as the head coach of the Super Eagles, I want to stress that he will not be intimidated or blackmailed into accepting the contract as proposed by the NFF.”
