The big boss, head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, has sensational explained why he failed to invite Chelsea Football Club of England midfielder, John Mikel Obi.
Speaking with the media during a parley, he denied speculations that broken relationships with the player led to him being snubbed.
“I decided not to bring him (Mikel) because right now I don’t need him for this game. Mikel and I spoke. We talked about it and he said no problem,” Keshi told media.
“I told him we will talk for the September game.
He equally used the media parley to also explain the absence of goalkeeper Austin Ejide.
“For Ejide, we are playing only a game now which is against Chad. So bringing in two foreign based goalkeepers is [uncalled for], I think I would rather give room to two local goalkeepers to go with captain [Vincent] Enyeama.
“If it were to be two games, I would have invited two foreign based goalkeepers. That actually informed my exclusion of Mikel and Austin Ejide.
“So with these three goalkeepers in camp it should be okay for the game. If we do not give them the room and opportunity to grow, when will they become Ejide or Vincent Enyeama or Emmanuel Okala?,” he concluded.
