“I didn’t say I was not going to offer him a new contract, we are going to work with him,” Pinnick said.
He revealed that “a lot of things will be put into consideration” before Keshi is offered a contract; adding that the “Big Boss” will be expected to work with the newly-constituted technical study group of the federation.
“We are going to take a lot of things into consideration.

“That is when there is any window, we will be able to send him on internship attachment to various clubs in Europe.
“All those are things we are doing to enhance his capacity.
“You will agree with me that Keshi has won everything; he just needs to be enhanced in terms of building his capacity and that is exactly what we intend to do,” he said.
