‘No deal yet for Keshi’
Stephen Keshi’s representative, Emmanuel Ado, has said that there is no deal in place yet from Nigeria Football Federation for his client.
Ado explained that the only agreement between Keshi and the Sports Minister, Dr. Tammy Danagogo, is for the coach to take charge of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Congo and South Africa on September 6 and 10 respectively.
He said that Keshi is not just demanding an improved salary but wants a contract that will not be breached.
Keshi also wants Nigeria to take up the payment of his assistants unlike the previous arrangement in which he had to cough up the wages of one or two of his assistants, according to Ado.
“I was with the minister (this week), and there is no long-term agreement entered into yet with the big boss (Keshi). The only agreement is that Keshi has agreed to handle the two Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Congo and South Africa.
“The issue about the contract talks isn’t just about the money or an improved package in terms of financials, but also other areas. For instance, there shouldn’t be a breach in contract in terms of when his salaries are due, and then the issue of his assistants being paid by his employers and not by him,” Ado told supersport.com.
Ado, however, disclosed that discussions are still ongoing between Keshi and the NFF.
