Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi says he has resigned from his position less than 24 hours after leading the team to Nations Cup glory.
Keshi said in a radio interview on Monday evening in South Africa that he handed in his resignation after Sunday's Final.
"I handed in my resignation after the Final on Sunday night," Keshi said in response to a question about his future from show host Robert Marawa.
The news came as a shock not only to fans, but also to Keshi's employers at the NFF.
Officials at the NFF's Garden Courtyard lodgings declined comment, as they quickly convened an emergency meeting to assess the situation.
