Keshi not worried about job

Nigeria head coach Stephen Keshi insists that he is unmoved by rumours regarding his future with the Super Eagles as he prepares for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.

Keshi has been dealing with issues around exiled players who want to rejoin the squad for the tournament, while the Nigeria Football Federation has been reportedly looking to add a foreign coach to his backroom staff.

The former Eagles captain has, however, accepted the current situation because of his previous experiences with the national team.

“This is life and not everybody is going to like you,” Keshi told BBC Sport. “I don’t worry about speculation about my job, I don’t worry about anything.

“So who am I to worry about everybody loving or not liking Stephen Keshi? I don’t care as long as my family loves me, as long as I am doing my job and I have good health – the rest is nothing.

“As long as I can put smile on somebody’s face every day, make them happy, that is all because I can say thank God.”

He added: “Worried about my job? You see this job we have is that they hire you today and they fire you tomorrow.

“I have done my best in my job for Nigeria and if they decide to fire me and bring someone else, so be it.”

Nigeria are in group F along with Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran.
