Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi is uncertain if he will remain in charge after the World Cup, but is planning ahead anyway. Keshi is on a two-year contract which runs out this year, but despite churning out great results with the team, has not been assured of a contract renewal.

Keshi, however, is already making plans to recall some of the players, like Leon Balogun, dropped from his 30-man provisional World Cup squad when he begins qualifying for the 2015 African Nations Cup, if he remains at the helm.

Stephen Keshi has given a hint, that he might no longer be in charge of the Super Eagles after the 2014 World Cup.

The Big Boss’ current two-year deal runs out this year and he has not received assurances from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), about a contract extension.

However, the former Togo and Mali coach, is keen to continue planning for the future, especially with the Africa Nations Cup qualifying games coming up.

“I wanted the best for the initial camping list but sadly we cannot take everybody along, we have to drop some of our best and committed players, I am happy that the players understand that fact,” Keshi said.

“I heard what Leon Balogun said and I must say I am thrilled that he understands the very difficult task we have been given by Nigerians, I trust that sooner than later Leon will be back in the team.

“We are targeting to bring him (Balogun) back during the qualifiers for the Nations Cup in Morocco and I trust we will still be in charge.
