I was not sacked - Stephen Keshi argues

Former Head Coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi has said he was not sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation.

Keshi who spoke at the Kwara State stadium during the final of the 28th edition of the All Financial Institutions Football competition, argued that his contract with the NFF ended with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, saying it would be inappropriate for anybody to say he was sacked.

Keshi explained that the Super Eagles could still qualify for the African Cup of Nations, adding that the team only needed to work hard.

"I was never sacked by the NFF. It's if you have an existing contract that you would be sacked. Super Eagles can still qualify for the 2015 AFCON. They have the chance, because the group is still open. They only need to work harder.

"We need a lot of encouragement from Nigerians for the players to go ahead and qualify. I think we can qualify for the 2015 AFCON," he said.
