Keshi Rejects Fifteen Million Pay From Angola

African  Cup of Nations 29th edition winning coach, Stephen Keshi has rejected fifteen million naira (N15m) salary dangled at him by the Angola Football Federation (AFF) for him to abandon the Super Eagles to coach the Angola National team (the Palanca Negras).

Responding to the Angola football authority, Keshi said “I cannot take your offer, the figure is good and tempting but I respect and love my President, Goodluck Jonathan, he had showed me much respect and love. I cannot because of money turn my back at him, now that he believes so much in me, and expected me to qualify the Eagles to the 2014 world cup for the nation”.

Keshi however, said what is paramount in his mind is to build on the success of the 29th edition of African Cup of Nation, as champions to bring further victory to Nigeria.

Keshi has already drawn his list of players whom will do battle for the nation in the forthcoming Brazil 2014 Confederation Cup in June 2013.

To this end, Keshi has made a bold statement saying that those who won the 29th edition of the African cup of Nations are still with him and willing, there should be no need of having new intakes, “I am sticking with the crew and players that had made the country proud, when even the rest of the people did not believe in us”.

Coach Stephen Keshi is planning to assemble the players to start his rebuilding process as to face the big task of qualifying Nigeria to the world cup and equally facing his confederation matches. ###
