Coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi has revealed that if Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, sacks him today, there are three Africa countries ready to hire him.
Speaking with AfricanFootball.com ahead of the Eagles crucial match against Sudan on Wednesday, 15 October, 2014, the former Eagles’ captain, who is currently without a contract, stated that he is not afraid of sack following the poor performance of his team in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Keshi insisted that countries like Gabon, Angola and Equatorial-Guinea are ready to hire him if Nigeria fails to renew his contract.
“It’s not about the game; it’s about other personal stuff. So, if tomorrow they say Keshi leave, there is no shaking because other two, three countries are waiting for me. My job is about hire and fire.

“Right now I have been to other places I have coached before I have not been fired. If it comes down to Nigeria, I have been here before, qualified Nigeria for 2002 World Cup with Amodu Shaibu, we were asked to leave,” Keshi reportedly said.
The big boss, as the former Togo and Mali coach is popularly called by his fans, added that Nigerians are calling for his head which, according to him, will be impossible for them to cut because the head belongs to him.
Also speaking on Brila FM early Tuesday, Keshi berated Nigerians for not having faith in his team despite winning the AFCON title in South Africa against all hopes.
