Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has said that he has not agreed on any contract with the Nigeria Football Federation. Keshi’s position was made by his brother and aide Emmanuel Ado through a statement issued on Wednesday.

He insisted that there was only a draft contract from the NFA and that both parties were to start negotiations on Wednesday contrary to picture painted by the NFF on Tuesday. The NFF members had said that they had finalised the fresh contract with Keshi for him to continue as the Eagles coach.

Their communiqué read, “The board expects the new contract to be signed by the NFF and Keshi in a matter of days.”

But Ado said, “On behalf of Keshi, I want to categorically state that no agreement has been reached between my client and the NFF. Nothing has been agreed. Statements credited to Inyama that arrangements have been finalised for him to sign a new contract are misleading.

“We have the draft contract from the federation and we expect to enter into negotiations today Aug. 13.

“I want to state that contracts are not a ‘take it or leave it’ thing. It is not a master-servant relationship.”

Keshi has asked for N15m per month salary while the NFF members want him to continue on the N5m he earned in the last two years during his first tenure which ended with the 2014 World Cup.
