Keshi reinstated as Super Eagles coach

Stephen Keshi has apparently been reinstated as coach of the Super Eagles coach.

On Thursday morning, media officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye tweeted: “Keshi returns as @NGSuperEagles coach”.

According to reports, the Big Boss has been asked to return to his post, as part of the reconciliatory moves in the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). President Goodluck Jonathan has also asked the Chris Giwa-board to withdraw its case from court, as FIFA’s Friday deadline looms.

Keshi was dismissed on October 16 by the Amaju Pinnick-led board, despite leading the African champions to a 3-1 win over Sudan in Abuja. Former handler Shuaibu Amodu was then appointed as caretaker coach.

The NFF is yet to release any official statement.
