"I have moved on" - Coach Stephen Keshi dumps Super Eagles

Coach Stephen Keshi is done coaching Nigeria.

It would be recalled that after his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) expired, it was reported that the NFF was in talks with him on coming back as the coach of the national football team. Keshi's alleged demand was better pay and a few additions to continue as coach.

Since then nothing as being said. Well Whatever the delay is, Keshi say he is done waiting.

In a chat with the BBC Sports , he says "I have moved on. I can only wish the country well for the future."

The 52-year-old added that; "I've had about seven countries approach me in the last two months but I kept them all away.

There's a game in two weeks (Nations Cup qualifier against Congo) but no-one is thinking about it and at the same time they expect you to win.

I understand the ongoing crisis facing the federation but the national team should not suffer from such at this crucial stage.

Sadly, I also think attention is focused more on the upcoming NFF elections and the national team is simply not a priority.

I love my country and I am aware of the dream our fans had of me taking this team to the next level.

While acknowledging the efforts of some people involved in the negotiation, I think others probably have other important things to do."
