• Keshi begs Nigerians over Eagles’ failure to qualify for AFCON 2015
By George aluo
After months of calling the bluff of Nigerians, former Super Eagles manager, Stephen Keshi, has pleaded with Nigerians to forgive him for failing to qualify the nation for the AFCON 2015 Nations Cup which was hosted by Equatorial Guinea.
Keshi’s apology was coming just as he moved to get a new contract as Eagles manager after failing to secure a job outside the nation’s shores.
The “Big Boss” who spoke yesterday through his manager, Emmanuel Ado, stated that Keshi regreted not leading the Eagles to Equitorial Guinea where Nigeria would have defended the Nations Cup trophy won in South Africa 2013.
In the words of Keshi’s manager: “I want to on behalf of Keshi apologize to all Nigerians and most especially the fans for the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the 2015 edition. “There were problems that contributed to the failure of the team to qualify for Equatorial Guinea ,which by the Grace of God has been largely resolved. We ask for forgiveness and support for the team to ensure that they get back to their winning ways.”
Keshi’s manager further dismissed as untrue, media reports that quoted him (Keshi) as calling NFF President Pinnick Amaju a liar, even as he added that Keshi had a good relationship with the NFF boss.
“The story in certain newspapers (not Daily Sunsports)that Keshi called the president of the federation a liar is unfortunate. Keshi is ever decorous and will never use such word for the president of the federation. “He is too cultured to use such a word. Those who profit from sensationalism as a way of life, create chaos by twisting facts out of context only to suit their own purpose”, Ado stated.
