Former Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Barr. Chris Green says he never had any issue with the late Super Eagles Boss, Stephen Keshi as the Big Boss won Nigeria’s third AFCON title in South Africa 2013 and that no one wanted him to fail enroute the AFCON triumph.
The Special Adviser to the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on Real Madrid Academy states this Friday, while being a guest on a session for Nigeria Sport Mouthpiece, the biggest WhatsApp platform dedicated to Nigeria football.
“I had very cordial relationship with Keshi, I pushed for his employment. We drew his program together. Even when he left for abroad after his employment it took Daniel Amokachie, Silvernus Okpalla, Valarie and the T/C to identify and invite our domestic players to camp”.
“I pushed that we started our camp here in Nigeria and keep the players as long as we could for proper building. We destroyed the dychocotomy of foreign based and home based eagle. Musa Amadu and Sanusi Mohammed were also helpful in making sure we our policy of raising our team from home worked”.
“Stephen Keshi was so passionate and believed in the domestic players and built them into world class. He made those coming outside to fight for their shirts. It is a lie from the pit of hell that anyone wanted SK to fail in SA”.
“Alot happened in SA that I wouldn’t want to say here. Infact people from outside fed SK with a lot of lies. Let God be the judge”, he concluded.
