President Jonathan orders reinstatement of Stephen Keshi as Super Eagles coach

President Goodluck Jonathan and Stephen Keshi

President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered the immediate reinstatement of former Super Eagles coach, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi.

Keshi whose contract with the Nigeria Football Federation was not renewed after the World Cup in Brazil, said he was not angry against those who relieved him of his assignment but admitted he was ready to return as a sign of respect to Mr President.

"If the number one citizen of this country asked me to stay back I wouldn't want to think any other team because this is the team I captained for 14 years and have coached for some years too but sometimes you do have mixed feelings because of what is on ground".

Concerning the must win second leg tie of the 2015 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Congo, Keshi said there is nothing to worry about because he still has his team intact.
