I Will Not Be Answerable To Any Technical Director – Keshi Explodes

Super Eagles out of contract chief coach, Stephen Keshi, has said that he would not be answerable to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Tech­nical Director, Shaibu Amodu, should the fed­eration stipulates it as one of the conditions in his new contract.

The Big Boss argued that in the organo­gram of football adminis­tration in every other parts of the country, the senior national team head coach comes next to the federa­tion’s president, insisting that the technical director comes a distance fourth after the federation’s Gen­eral Secretary.

Warning that he would never be answerable to the NFF technical direc­tor, Keshi said: “Go and check any federation in the world, after the presi­dent of the federation, the next on the line of senior­ity is the national team head coach. I don’t have to answer to the technical director.

“It is only in Nigeria where most people don’t understand what is going on that people will expect the national team head coach to take order from the technical director. I have worked with tech­nical directors in other countries and I can tell you that they take order from me.

“I tell them what I need from them to do for me. If it is like that in other countries, why should I take order from a techni­cal director who is sup­posed to be under me in order of hierarchy?” He said.
