Keshi claims sabotage in Super Eagles

13 October 2014, 14:03

Nairobi - Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi claims his side's AFCON qualifying campaign has fallen victim to sabotage following a win less run so far.

The Super Eagles look set to miss out on the chance to defend the title they won in 2013 as they currently sit rock bottom of Group A after managing just one point from their opening three qualifiers.

And Keshi, who has come under intense criticism since Nigeria's failed 2014 World Cup campaign, says there are internal factors at work which have led to the side's downfall.

"There is a sabotage by some people, who I won't mention their names but who know themselves. They want to run this team down," Keshi told African Football.

"Some people are ready to sell this country for a dime. They want to sabotage the Super Eagles.

"It's a shame. They don't want this team to get to the AFCON, they want this team to lose outright. But they are not God."

"And this is not Keshi's team. This is a national team. Keshi is a professional coach and after this (assignment), he will get another job elsewhere."
