Lagos, April 2 (IANS) The Nigeria Football Association (NFA) was yet to finalise details on a new contract for national team coach Stephen Keshi.
NFA secretary general Mohammed Sanusi said on Wednesday that the contract papers were still being worked on by the NFA’s legal department after it was approved by the board for Keshi to sign, reports Xinhua.
The NFA board had given approval on March 26 for the contract to be renewed. It had earlier handed Keshi a draft of the contract for him to peruse before the actual signing.
The contract signing was later put on hold after the NFA board demanded an apology from Keshi for being reported to have called the association chairman Amaju Pinnick a liar.
This was after Pinnick had claimed Keshi was not owed salary arrears.
The NFA secretary general urged the public to refrain from speculations over the contract, saying the association was not arm- twisted by anybody to give Keshi the Super Eagles job.
