Former coach of Green Eagles James Peters has raised the alarm on the imminent disaster that may confront Nigeria chances of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil if the post-Africa Cup of Nations cold war between the NFF and coach Stephen Keshi is not put to rest now.
The former Assistant General Secretary with the NFF said that the cold war if not resolved fast may cost Nigera the ticket to the World Cup, adding that there is no point pretending that all is well between the duo.
He advised Keshi to go and make peace with his employers and move ahead, noting that he cannot
succeed in isolation as the federation are the ones on whose tables the buck stops.
”I see disaster looming if the two parties do not come together to work the way they did before the NationCup victory. They should bury the hatchet and plan on how to beat Kenya on March 23 in Calabar. The euphoria of winning the cup should be over by now.
”Keshi has done well by winning the cup after 19 years but he should know that he succeeded because the NFF gave him maximum support and encouragement. He should go and make peace with them to avert failure in the world cup qualifier,s” he stated.
