Head coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi, has been offered a new two-year deal by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, theeagleonline.com.ng reports.
According to the report, the new deal is expected to worth nothing less than N168 million, while Keshi’s monthly salary would also be increased to N7million for the Big Boss to remain at his post.
Prior to Nigeria’s exit from the ongoing 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Keshi was being paid a monthly salary of N5 million.
However, the 0-2 defeat to the Les Blues of France in the round of 16 of the world cup ended Keshi’s contract with the NFF.
It was gathered that the Nigerian football governing body decided to offer Keshi an improved deal amid confusion over the status of his employment.

Some reports had claimed that Keshi, who is yet to append his signature to the new deal, complained about the clauses contained in the new contract papers.
Speaking with theeagleonline.com.ng on the matter, Keshi stated that part of what he would demand before he accepts the new offer is for the NFF to provide him with an official accommodation and a car to function.
