Former Nigeria captain and coach Stephen Keshi has passed away.
‘Big Boss’ reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest in the early hours of this morning. He was 54.
AjaxCTfans would like to send our condolences to the Nigerian Football fraternity and the family of the late Stephen Keshi.
Keshi was one of only two people to have won the Africa Cup of Nations as a player and a coach – Mahmoud El-Gohary of Egypt being the other.
As a player he had won 64 caps playing the Super Eagles as a central defender.
Up until last week he was linked with the Orlando Pirates job , though he subsequently denied those rumours.
