Stephen Keshi has not received salary since winning Africa Nations Cup

This is sad but it happens

REVEALED: Keshi hasn’t been paid anysalary since he won AFCON

Stephen Keshi has not been paid any salary, since he led Nigeria to gold at the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.

The former Super Eagles captain has not made an official complaint about the matter, but the Nigeria Football Federation told BBC Sport, that it was “under control”.

NFF general secretary general Musa Amadu said: “Between the federation and the coaching crew, we don’t have a problem.

“Obligations to the coaching crew are always settled, and we have the understanding of the coaching crew in this regard”

“We’ve been working together with Stephen Keshi since November 2011 and he knows the peculiar situation [financial problems] of how things are with the federation.

“We try as much as possible to pay our
obligations, likewise the coach, and we’ve had a very good working relationship. “I know the coach will not bring to the fore any such matters.”

The NFF is currently affected seriously by poor finances and also owes assistant coaches Daniel Amokachi and goalkeeper trainer Ike Shoronmu. Amadu says everyone who is owed, has to exercise patience.

“Perhaps there are people out there that want to capitalise on such matters to create problems between the federation and the coach,” he said.

“But I know that obligations to the coaching crew are always settled, and we do have the understanding of the coaching crew in thisregard.

“We appreciate that understanding and right now the focus is not about what is being written in the media but it is on the CHAN qualifiers.”
