Keshi’s Eagles to get more fresh faces

Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi is not in a hurry to shut the door on fresh faces to the team.

In the last AFCON qualifier against Chad in Kaduna, William Troost Ekong, Kingsley Madu and Anderson Esiti got their debut a situation that that worried Nigerians who see too many new additions to the team as a bane to smooth team play.

But Keshi, in an exclusive interview told said that his rebuilding process will not end as long as he remains coach of the team.

“In football, rebuilding is forever,” Keshi told

“Is it not Chelsea who were champions last season who want to buy new players? Arsenal, Manchester United have fantastic sides but still continue to get new players.

“You need to keep looking for balance and that new thing that will make your team better so we will continue to bring new players into the team so far as they will help the team,” Keshi said.

He recalled that during his playing days, Clemens Westahof continued to change his team because he always wanted something new.

Nothing to prove

In spite of his recent worries, Keshi says he has no point to prove to Nigerians as regards his ability to handle the national team.

“If I do not have anything to prove to Nigerians I have a lot to prove to myself.

“Every day I go out to work I have to prove to myself that I have a standard I must keep, in training sessions and games,” He said.

Keshi has come under fire from the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, fans of the national team and the media in recent times after it was alleged that he applied for the coaching job of Ivory Coast while still having a contract with Nigeria.
