Keshi back in the saddle

The Nigeria Football Federation have finally signed a two year contract with Stephen Keshi to continue as the Super Eagles coach on Tuesday in a brief ceremony at the media centre of the National Stadium, Abuja.

Earlier scheduled for Monday last week, the ceremony was postponed due to the inability of the two parties to reach an agreement.

But apparently all has been sorted after a protracted and long drawn negotiations and the former Mali coach will lead the Super Eagles for the next two years.

The 'Big Boss' speaking after the ceremony said he is willing to start afresh and wants everyone to be involved as he aims to fly with the Super Eagles.

"This is a new page in Nigerian football and what happened in the past has happened. I have what it takes to take the country forward."Keshi told the media after his unveiling.

"I have what it takes to take this country forward.

The one time Togo coach also stated that he wants to start his latest adventure with the Super Eagles on a positive note and says all is in the past now and it's time to look forward to a better Super Eagles.

"We won in the past, we drew and we lost. But we have to move forward now.

"I have what it takes to take this country forward.

"I'll will work with the office to move our football forward. The past is in the past."Keshi enthused.

Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations which raised doubts if Stephen Keshi will be retained as the coach.
