NFF Keeps Keshi’s Assistant Sylvanus Okpala On Hold



Abuja – Vanguard reported that, “the planned return of former Super Eagles captain Sylvanus Okpala to join Stephen Keshi in his redemption job has been put on hold by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.”

“As part of efforts at ensuring that the Eagles soar higher in Keshi’s second coming, he (Keshi) had requested for the services of the 1980 African Cup of Nations winner whose contribution to the success of the Eagles in South Africa in 2013 cannot be wished away.”, Vanguard wrote.

Sports Vanguard can reveal authoritatively that the former Rangers International of Enugu star would not join up with the rest of the technical crew made up of Ike Shorunmu and Salisu Yusuf until the NFF settles the huge debts owed him as awarded by Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS). A dependable source at the Glass House said that it was ethically wrong to hire Okpalla immediately when ‘’we are still settling his huge debts’’.
