Keshi offered N7m-a- month contract

The Nigeria Football Federation has offered Stephen Keshi an improved contract of seven million naira a month (over $44,000) a top official told africanFootball.com.

In his first contract, which expired after the World Cup, the former Super Eagles captain earned five million naira monthly and has now demanded twice that amount.

Keshi, who was not considered for the South African post and the NFF are expected to finalise a new deal next week.

The official who has been part of the contract talks said the “Big Boss” wishes to continue as Nigeria coach

“We have had meetings with Keshi and the good news is that he is willing to continue as coach of the Super Eagles,” the official told africanFootball.com.

“He is only concerned that most of the fringe benefits in his contract were not provided and demands better treatment from the Federation.

“I think the first step was a success and we will build on it because the (2015 Africa Cup of Nations) qualifiers are not far away.”

The Super Eagles will in early September begin the defence of the AFCON crown won in South Africa last year.

The African champions will play in a group comprising South Africa, Sudan and either Congo or Rwanda.
