We have received with utmost sadness the news of the untimely death of our Comrade in football, Mr. Stephen Keshi. The demise of this great football icon whose life was dressed with so many accolades both as a player and Coach has indeed left another void on our global.game.
“Big boss” as he was fondly dedicatedly served football with the desired passion and moral obligation that equaled his charisma and love for humanity. Stephen Keshi will surely be missed beyond the borders of Nigeria.
