â€œEmenalo Should Be Hired If Stephen Keshi Turns Down Nigeria For South Africaâ€ â€“ Orji Uzor Kalu SpeaksBy kellychi 10:48 Sun, 27 Jul 2014 Comments
Former Governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has asked the Nigeria Football Federation to consider Michael Emenalo, who is currently Chelseaâ€™s technical director, if they choose to let Stephen Keshi go.
Keshiâ€™s future as the Super Eagles handler remains uncertain, although reports today claimed he was about to sign a double-your-money deal to continue.
â€œWe have good coaches in Nigeria, but we need someone who is tactically and technically sound in the knowledge of the game. Keshiâ€™s performance with the national team is outstanding,â€ Kalu was quoted by
â€œHis records speak volumes about what the country has achieved since he began as the head coach.
â€œHowever, Emenalo is undoubtedly a capable
replacement should Keshi leave the post. His current position as Chelseaâ€™s sporting director shows his pedigree in the round leather game.
â€œIf he is not good on the job, he wouldnâ€™t be in Chelsea since 2007.â€
Emenalo played in the same Nigeria team that was captained by Keshi and participated in the 1994 World Cup.
