The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has finally fired Nigeria’s head coach Stephen Keshi after weeks of his being probed by the commission’s disciplinary committee.
The decision was revealed by the NFF’s Executive Committee on Saturday, who said the decision was made, “having thoroughly reviewed the reports/findings of the NFF Disciplinary Committee and NFF Technical and Development Committee, as well as having reviewed the actions and inactions of Mr. Stephen Keshi, in the performance of his duties as Super Eagles’ Head Coach.”
The Federation noted Keshi ”lacked the required commitment to achieve the Federation’s objectives as set out in the Coach’s employment contract.”
” To this end and pursuant to the provisions of Clause 4.3 of the Employment Contract between Mr. Stephen Keshi and the NFF (The Contract) and the various clauses therein, the Nigeria Football Federation has decided to exercise its option to summarily terminate the employment contract of Mr. Stephen Keshi with the Federation with immediate effect.”
It added that the termination was “without prejudice to the settlement of any existing and due financial obligations between the NFF and Mr. Keshi.” (Via: naij.com)
