Keshi wants to stay on after World Cup

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has said he would wish to keep his job after the World Cup in June “if the conditions are right”.

Keshi has been in charge of the Super Eagles for about three years during which he won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and qualified the country for a fifth World Cup.

However, his relationship with his employers, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has not been smooth sailing so much so he quit the post just hours after he led the country to win the Nations Cup in South Africa last year.

“If the condition is good, I will definitely stay,” Keshi said on Tuesday.

“I am not in Nigeria (as coach) to make money, if I want to do that, I would have be in other countries that offered me more, but I want to contribute and help build the Super Eagles as well as develop football in my country.”
