Stephen Keshi remembered by football world 2-years after his death

Stephen Keshi
The football world has continued to remember Nigeria’s football legend and former Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, two years after his demise.

The ‘Big Boss’, as fondly called, died in Benin City, the Edo State capital, at the age of 54 in June 2016.




 Keshi, the only Nigerian coach to have won the Africa Cup of Nations, achieved a rare feat in 2013 by becoming only the second person to win the trophy both as a player and a coach, after Mahmoud El-Gohary of Egypt.

The football legend represented Nigeria from 1982, at age 20, till 1994, most of the time captaining the Super Eagles and scoring vital goals from his position as a central defender.

He had also coached Togo and Nigeria at the World Cup, as well as Mali



The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Nigeria Football Federation, as well as former Eagles Captain Kanu Nwankwo, are among the many who paid tributes to the Big Boss on twitter.

Morning Sports fans.

On this day in 2016, we lost our CAPTAIN, LEADER, COACH and LEGEND Stephen Okechukwu Keshi. You will always be in our thoughts.


Always happens. We never realise what we have until we lose it. Stepho was probably not perfect but he was a true legend. A true servant of the game. And a guy who knew what it took to unlock the complexity of Nigerian football. Sorely missed.
A noteworthy veteran who displayed the phenomenal courage necessary for successful performance in sports.

May your soul rest in peace, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi ! πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬
