Stephen Keshi has said he won’t mind returning as Nigeria’s coach, if he was asked to do so by the President.

According to THE NATION, President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered Keshi be reinstated after he was sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). When asked if he was aware of the presidential order yesterday in Abuja, Keshi told “Well, I am just hearing from you. But if the President of my country asked me to return, who am I to refuse?”

‘Big Boss’ was at press time locked in a meeting with Sports Minister Tammy Danagogo. Keshi had earlier refused to comment on speculations he was to return as the country’s coach just weeks after he was eased out with Nigeria in danger of missing out on next year’s Africa Cup of Nations. Several top sources have confirmed that Jonathan has ordered Keshi be re-instated and given a contract. This was after his meeting with NFF president Amaju Pinnick and Chris Giwa at the Aso Rock Villa Wednesday night.

“Keshi is back as Nigeria coach and he will be the one to lead the Super Eagles against Congo and South Africa next month,” one of the top sources informed  An official statement is being expected in this respect.
