The world still reacting to the death of Stephen Keshi, Nigeria’s legend and one of Africa’s best both as a player and manager.
FIFA, Ex Nigeria Internationals, Present Super Eagles players, Kalusha Bwalya, Yaya Toure have all taken to their social media platforms to express their condolences to Keshi’s family.
He left so soon, he will surely be missed. He was a genius during his active days as the Super Eagles player and coach. He led Nigeria to her last two AFCON first as the captain in 1994 and as the coach in 2013.
He was the big boss as a player and a coach. His impact will forever be missed.
