Reports that Nigerian coach Stephen Keshi applied for the Ivory Coast while under contract with Nigeria has led to Nigeria parting ways with Keshi. Shuaibu Amodu will replace him as the head coach with immediate effect, the Nigerian football federation (NFF) has announced.
"Having thoroughly reviewed the reports/findings of the NFF Disciplinary Committee and NFF Technical and Development Committee, as well as having reviewed the actions and inactions of Mr. Stephen Keshi, in the performance of his duties as Super Eagles' head coach, which we found to lack the required commitment to achieve the federation’s objectives as set out in the coach’s employment contract," the NFF said in a statement.
The 53-year-old Keshi only recently began his second stint as Nigeria coach after his first contract ran out following Nigeria's knockout from the World Cup in Brazil last year.
In his first stint he also led the Eagles to win a third Africa Cup
