SUPER Eagles' chief coach, Stephen Keshi says he is not losing sleep over the mandate given him by Nigerians saying win or lose, the world goes on.
When asked what Nigerians should expect as he experiments with a new-look team for slots at 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa and 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Keshi said he will take whatever results that come from his effort in good faith.
''I am working hard with the players and the coaching crew to get the best results for Nigeria but I am not under pressure because I know results can only be good or bad.''
Keshi added: ''I have been long in this game as a captain and as a coach, so I know football is always football but I hope for the best in the circumstance we are now.''
Keshi also recalled his past experiences on the Nigerian job.
''I've always been called upon from my US base to take up the coaching since the days of Bonfrere Jo who I eventually assisted.
However, as a chief coach, I have been turned down by officials of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, who felt 'Keshi will be too difficult to handle, 'he will flout our instructions',' he is too arrogant' ...and all that stuffs but now things are getting better.'’Share
