Former member of the board of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Prince Isidore Oduah has maintained his position that Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi should forget about returning as national team coach.
Speaking with Sports Vanguard on Sunday, December 28, 2014 Oduah reiterated that Keshi no longer had business returning to the NFF secretariat for the same job he failed in.
He added that the failure of Keshi to qualify the country for the 2015 Afcon, has caused him to destroy whatever reputation he had built from time.
“Keshi should hide his face in shame and leave because even those who are close to him are asking him not to return. I’m happy people like his former boss, Shaibu Amodu and Christian Chukwu are beginning to tell him the truth.” He said.
“Keshi has abused the privileges he enjoys from high places. He has embarrassed his benefactors by failing to qualify Nigeria for the Nations Cup. He should just go.” He added.
He therefore advised NFF to progress and appoint a new coach who will rebuild Nigerian football.
“I don’t think there is anybody who will blame them if, at this stage, they ignore Keshi and appoint another coach for the national team. No individual is bigger than the country.”
