The Coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi, has appealed to Nigerian football fans to forgive the technical crew and the team for failing to qualify for the last Nations Cup.
Speaking to Channels Television in Abuja, Mr Keshi said that his second coming as the Head Coach of the Super Eagles would witness a total turn around for the team and the development of Nigerian football.
He further appealed to football loving fans to support the Super Eagles at all times, promising an improvement in the performance of the team.
There had been reports that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) had agreed a new deal with Stephen Keshi, after a meeting between his representatives and the NFF.
Sources said that the discussion between the two parties went well with a formal pronouncement still being expected.
Keshi’s apology comes as Nigerians look forward to the qualifiers for the 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) where Nigeria is pitched in group G along with 7-time African champions, Egypt, Tanzania and Chad.
Stephen Keshi has been managing the Nigerian National Team since 2011.
