Stephen Keshi had to come in to settle a feud between the Super Eagles duo of John Mikel Obi and Emmanuel Emenike.
According to reports, the two senior players have been at loggerheards since the goalless draw against Greece last Wednesday, but after Keshi’s intervention, they both hugged and shookhands.
“Keshi had a family chat with the boys yesterday and in the meeting he made it known to Mikel and Emenike that their rift is unsettling the team,” a source said.
“After a heated exchange both players poured out their minds after which Keshi settled them but not without getting involved in a shouting game with one of them.”
“At the end both players shook hands,hugged and even ended up in each other’s room chatting before going to bed, it’s over thanks to Keshi spotting it early.”
It is also understood that other squad players were given the chance to pour out their minds, so every dispute could be settled ahead of Nigeria’s participation at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.The Eagles faces Iran in their opening Group F match on June 15.
