“Emenalo Should Be Hired If Stephen Keshi Turns Down Nigeria For South Africa” – Orji Uzor Kalu Speaks

Former Governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has asked the Nigeria Football Federation to consider Michael Emenalo, who is currently Chelsea’s technical director, if they choose to let Stephen Keshi go.

Keshi’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.

“We have good coaches in Nigeria, but we need someone who is tactically and technically sound in the knowledge of the game. Keshi’s performance with the national team is outstanding,” Kalu was quoted by

Soccer Star.

“His records speak volumes about what the country has achieved since he began as the head coach.

“However, Emenalo is undoubtedly a capable

replacement should Keshi leave the post. His current position as Chelsea’s sporting director shows his pedigree in the round leather game.

“If he is not good on the job, he wouldn’t be in Chelsea since 2007.”

Emenalo played in the same Nigeria team that was captained by Keshi and participated in the 1994 World Cup.
