NFF: Ex- Super Eagle Coach, Keshi is Set For Legal Fireworks

Former super eagle coach "Stephen Keshi" is to officially begin a legal tussle with the Nigeria Football Federation as it is now midway to the expiration of the deadline in
the letter written to press for compensation from the country’s football governing body.
Keshi was fired by the NFF on July 4 majorly on grounds that he applied for the then vacant Ivory Coast national team coaching job, as well as for inviting to the national team a player (Gabriel Okechukwu) adjudged not qualified for the Super Eagles.
Documents obtained from Keshi’s legal team, dated July 13, 2015, was acknowledged to have been received on July 15 by the NFF, and a deadline of 30 days was spelt out for all demands requested to be met.
Amongst other things, Keshi’s legal team demanded a N1billion compensation from the NFF and a written apology circulated across the world as they claim their client’s contract was wrongfully terminated on frivolous grounds and his hard-earned name soiled.
