He won a super cup and resigned...And hours later, he is back...Super Kechi.Super Eagles

The 19th Super Eagles coach,Stephen Okechukwu Keshi who resigned barely 24 hours of winning the African cup of nations for Nigeria is back as a coach.Hmm...Funny. This resignation was because Kechi was already sacked before he helped his country win her AFCON cup. The saga between him and the Nigerian Football Federation began before Nigeria played with the Ivory Coast on Feb.3rd.

Kechi made this report known on  Metro FM South Africa with Robert Marawa .When NFF heard that Nigeria would play against the star-studded Ivory Coast, they had quickly booked a plane that would bring Kechi back to Nigeria.
Kechi was quoted as saying “It’s a shame in Africa, When there’s an African coach nobody wants to give you time, they want you to have the job today, build a wonderful team tomorrow and next year win the World Cup. If only we could work out how these things work we could have more success. But most coaches aren’t given freedom to work so they are held back.“ He did not believe that NFF have no regards for his position as a coach and faith in him.

And he surprised everyone by beating Ivory Coast and winning the cup. However, this resignation from Kechi would have to be tabled before NFF. This is really unfortunate...And they have sat and called him back...
I wonder if NFF is the one coaching him or...
