VPRO-E SPORT: Foreign Coaches After Africa’s Money-Coach Keshi


Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has criticised foreign coaches on the continent of Africa, saying they are there only for the money.

Keshi, a winner of the African Cup of Nations in 1994 as a player, believes that the role of white coaches in the continent can be done by local coaches as he feels they are just around for the money.

“The white guys are coming to Africa just for the money. They are not doing anything that we cannot do. I am not racist but that’s just the way it is,” he told the BBC.

“African coaches – when (federations) employ them, (the federations) want them to win the World Cup, the Africa Cup of Nations and every game. Meanwhile, if you give a white person the same job, you tell the white person they need one year to adapt, to know the country and the players – they are told ‘don’t worry, take your time’.

Keshi is famous for helping Togo qualify for the World Cup in 2006 only to be dropped at the last minute for a foreign coach
