Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has apologized to the Nigerian media, and says he is sorry if he has offended them in the process of doing his job.
The 53-year old signed a new 2-year contract with the Nigeria Football Federation on Tuesday to continue as the Super Eagles coach, amid disapproval from a section of the media.
But the former Super Eagles captain says he has no problems with the media, saying he understands he is bound to work with the press in the process of discharging his duties.
“For one moment I never thought I had problems with the media,” he said. “I’ve been friendly with the media but you can be friendly with someone and he feels he doesn’t want your friendship.
“But I have never gone against the media because I understand in coaching, you’re bound to work with the media and this is what I have been doing all over the place.”
“I am your brother and I am your friend but I have to be honest with you because if you have ask me a question that is not it, I have to tell you.
“If only we can live with honesty then everything will work fine. So I don’t have a problem with the media, I never had and if you guys (media) think I have done something you do not like, I’m sorry,” he pleaded.
Just like any coach that handles the Super Eagles, Keshi has had his share of fall-outs with the media.
