Keshi receives new Nigeria deal…finally

Coach Stephen Keshi has disclosed he has finally received a new contract from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and he is studying it.

Keshi said: “I got a mail from the NFF late last night (Wednesday) with the contract.”

And even though Keshi was not forthcoming with details of the deal, the former Mali and Togo boss dismissed claims of a salary slash.

“I am still studying the contract but I can tell you that reports of a slash to my monthly take-home are not true,” he disclosed.

“The NFF have offered the same amount I was earning when I took the team to the World Cup in Brazil (which is five million Naira).”

On Thursday, Keshi lost out in the race to coach Bukina Faso, who opted for German coach Gernot Rohr, previously in charge of Niger and Gabon.
