Keshi - I have failed

Super eagles coach Stephen Keshi has come out to say he still remains the right man to lead Nigeria to the future.

Nigeria will not be playing in the next African cup of nations (AFCON) in Equatorial Guinea next year.

The super eagles wasted the chance of qualifying when they drew with Bafana Bafana of South Africa in Calabar stadium last week.

Keshi believes that sacking coach when a teams fails is not the best. He also said authority should look beyond coach to find solutions to the problem.

Keshi also said that he can't deny it is a shame not to have qualified. On my part, I failed the nation but my players took South Africa match for granted, a match they needed to win.

Keshi who is also a former eagles captain who won the nations cup as a player and added to his list of achievement by wining the nations cup as a coach in the last Nations cup in South Africa.

      yeah that’s true, most coach will rather look for a way to push blames on others rather than acknowledge the fact that they also contributed to the failure

    One thing is sure if he have actually realised that he failed it think it’s a good step for improvement and yes sacking a coach for losing ain’t gonna solve Nigeria football problem
