Keshi Opens Up On Burkina Faso Link

A report monitored on supersport.com says Stephen Keshi has revealed the interest of Burkina Faso Football Federation, FBF, to engage him as coach of the Stallions.
The out-of-contract Nigeria manager disclosed on Friday that the Burkinabe FA asked him if he is interested in the head coach role vacated by Belgian, Paul Put, this week.
The 52-year-old, who the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is considering to renew his contract after eight months that his initial deal as Super Eagles coach expired, claimed the Burkinabes have told him they want him to take charge of their national team.
“Oh yes it is true that the Burkina FF contacted me for the job of their national team. But I have not been given the job as I am not the only man who they are considering for the job. There are two or three others coaches also approached for the job,” Keshi told supersport.com.
“But most of the Burkina Faso Federation officials I have spoken to, say they will like me to take up the job. But let’s see how that goes since there are others up for it.”
The former Mali and Togo manager also claimed that there have been no talks between him and the NFF over renewing his contract since it ran out after the FIFA World Cup last year.
Keshi says he is in the dark about any proposed new deal from the NFF.
“To be honest, no one has told me anything about a new deal. I only read or hear them like you have just told me. But like I said I will wait and see what happens as I have to make a decision on my future as well,” he said.
FBF president, Colonel Sita Sangare, announced five shortlists for the coaching role. Keshi will be considered alongside Claude Le Roy, former France coach Jacques Santini, Gernot Rohr and immediate past Senegal manager Alain Giresse.
