Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) - Super Eagles head coach Stephen Keshi has apologised to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over the public spat he had with the federation after leading the national team to lift the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations title in South Africa earlier this month.
“If I did something that they (NFF) didn’t like, then I say I’m sorry. If I did hurt (Aminu) Maigari (NFF President) by my action, then I’m sorry,' the local media Tuesday quoted Keshi to have said on a television programme on Monday night.
The simmering crisis between Keshi and the NFF exploded after the tournament when the coach suddenly announced his resignation. He later rescinded the decision.
Giving a hint of the crisis, Keshi said his problem was with a few members of the NFF.
“One or two members were very unprofessional and were meddling in matters that should solely be for the coach. I was told so many things like I did not carry out my substitutions well; I should have been on my feet screaming while the match against Zambia lasted. And so many funny ideas from those who believe they are also coaches,” he said.
