Micho Sredojevic beats Stephen Keshi to Rwanda job

Posted: 1 November 2011 Time: 22:04

Serbian Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has beaten Stephen Keshi in the race to be appointed coach of the Rwanda national team.

Sredojevic, 42, replaces Ghanaian Sellas Tetteh, who left the post two months ago after a 5-0 defeat to Ivory Coast in a 2012 African Nations Cup qualifier.

He was chosen from a five-man shortlist that included Keshi, Ratomir Dujkovic, Patrice Neveu and Branko Smiljanic.

His first task will be to lead the Wasps in a 2014 World Cup qualifier against Eritrea, before contemplating the prospect of a 2013 African Nations Cup preliminary round qualifier against fallen giants Nigeria.

Although the Serb was chosen because of his vast experience in Africa, the highlight of his coaching career is leading Sudanese side Al Hilal to the semifinals of the Africa Champions League.

@ Karewa... I dey laugh too o. Na the same Keshi o. Only Nigeria can give Keshi a job. Imagine Rwanda, Equitorial Guinea, Togo, Zambia... Na wao. Nff gave him a lifeline and he jumped at it. Keshi is a failure and he can not give what he does not have. Shhuuuu. Desperado....

Please NFF dont give Super Eagles job to Keshi. Sacked in Mali and rejected in Rwanda, there is no way he could be our cornerstone. I remember he crashed out of U-21 AYC in Ethiopia, 2001, even with a team that boasts the likes of Christian Obodo. Agreed he qualified Togo for the world cup, but is that all the credendtial needed to be SE Gaffer? Did Ahmodu(As rigid and uninventive as he was) not qualify us twice?
What about horror showing by Togo at AFCON? with Keshi almost coming to blows with Emmanuel Adebayor?
He took Mali, a team overflowing with talents like former African footballer of the year, Omar Kanoute, Real Madrid Muhammadu Diarra, Barca's Seyidou Keita, to an ignominous first round exit in the last AFCON.

Keshi's appointment will re-introduce corruption and bias in players selection. I wont rule out him trying to act as a pseudo agent for new talents so as to get a 'cut' from their contracts in foreign clubsides.

I SAY NO TO KESHI

No indigenous coach can do anything. When we are power house who made it. Give honor to whom is do. NFF need consultation before appointing a coach, ask the player whom they want. Don't enforce them with all this so-called ex-internationals who play football with pant. The smelliest country in Africa and world at large is hiring foreign coach to take their football forward and we hiring from one idiot to another. Well kash can be tried but it is a waste of time because he cannot change the situation.

To all Siasia supporters: Is any wrong in Siasia also applying for Rwanda or any other country's job for all to see his popularity and whether he would be employed? Or is the SE job his birth right? Iam not Keshi's fan, but he is far experienced and better than Siasia.
Siasia, should go outside Nigeria and prove himself with a different country national team first.

Siasia is an online coach that is not even qualified to apply to coach any country (except Nigeria).

Keshi is not good, unfortunately NFF has hired him. Keshi will fail. We need a coach like Samson Siasia who is not afraid to loose a match, not coaches like Keshi that would beg players to play, and would not introduce new players to the team, how do we build a new team if a coache like Keshi is employed.Look at the job Samson did with bringing in so many players like Joel Obi, Musa, Chibuzor, Emenike,Victor Mosese just approved by FIFA, if NFF had kept Siasia he would ave improved on our team, but now we going back.
