Keshi: I never resigned

02 July 2014, 12:21

Nairobi - Stephen Keshi has moved to clarify claims he tendered his resignation following Nigeria's last-16 exit from the World Cup in Brazil.

The Africa Cup of Nations winning mentor's time in charge of the Super Eagles came to an end on Tuesday after he laid down the reins following their 2-0 defeat to France.

However, the coach insists he did not quit the role, revealing instead that his contract with the Nigerian Football Federation had merely come to an end.

"I never resigned because my contract just ended. I will only resign if I have a contract," the former Super Eagles captain told African Football.

"I was meant to know that I'm still on as long as the World Cup is there. Once the World Cup is over, I'm no more there.

"No one from the NFF offered me a contract, so what do you want me say? To keep shut? I need to let the world know that I'm a free agent, I can go anywhere until otherwise."

He added: "We have to talk on my personal terms or it won't work because in the first contract of two and a half years, there was no house, no vehicle, my staff...there was nothing done. I really don't know."

The 52-year-old, who is believed to be among the front runners for the Bafana Bafana head coach position, is one of only two people, along with Egypt's Mahmoud El-Gohary, to have won AFCON as both a player and a coach.
