Keshi Doesn't Leave Super Eagles

Super Eagles' head coach, Stephen Keshi, has denied reports about his resignation after the Super Eagles lost to France in the World Cup on June 30, 2014, Monday.

Yesterday, July 1, Keshi tried to clear the air, saying that mass media misunderstood his speech he made to the players in the dressing room after the 0-2 loss to France in the second round of the ongoing World Cup in Brazil.

Keshi stated: "What I said to my players was that this maybe my last match at the helm of affairs in the national team, because my contract terminates with the World Cup and I have not been offered a new one. I was a bit shocked that the global media went to town to say I have called it quits with the national team. Resignations are not done on the pages of newspapers but formally."

However, he didn't deny that some countries have showed interest in him and even made some interesting offers. Keshi believes it is a good sign for Nigerian football and coaches but assured that he will not abandon ship without a formal notice.

The national team will return to Nigeria on Friday this week, but not all the 23 players will return with the team to the country, as some of them have already gone to join their club sides for pre-season preparations.
