Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, last threw in the towel, saying that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) was yet to discuss contract renewal with him.

“Up till this World Cup, nobody has called me to discuss the issue of renewing my contract. So I think it is time to move on. I have done my bit with Nigeria and I am only sad that I would have loved to take the boys to the next round or even the semi final of the World Cup here,” the Big Boss said after Nigeria lost 0-2 to France in the Brazil 2014 World Cup Round of 16.

On the match Keshi had this to say: “We didn’t deserve to lose this game. We made one mistake in the defence and paid for it with the first goal. For me, I don’t like to talk about referees but today’s officiating was clearly against my team.

“I think the mindless tackles that were inflicted on Onazi (Ogenyi) should have been punished with expulsion, yet, the referee (Mark Geiger of USA), just gave a caution card. It was not good enough.”

The former Togo and Mali gaffer said now that the World Cup was over for Nigeria, he was going to take a deserved rest with his family in America.

“I have not had a rest in the last three months. I am going to America to take a rest, stay with my family and thereafter, think of what to do with my coaching career,” he stated.

Keshi is currently rated the best coach in Africa. The first indigenous coach to win the Africa Cup of Nations for Nigeria and qualify the country for the second round of the World Cup, he is reportedly being sought by a number of countries. The NFF, on the other hand, is reportedly looking for a foreign coach to take over the Super Eagles.
