I would have done worse than Onazi, says Keshi

Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi has told Naijafootball247.com that he could have done more than Onazi who received a red card for retaliation against Chad.

Onazi was given the marching orders for hitting back at an opponent after Nigeria got the penalty for the second goal and while Keshi says the Lazio player has been forgiven, he adds that in his playing days, he would have done worse than the midfielder did.

“Of course I’ve forgiven him but I would probably have done worse than Onazi did,” Keshi told naijafootball247.com.

“How can you stand on your own and somebody comes to hit you in the eye? That’s painful. Without a cause? Football is not played like that and in the heat of the moment, Onazi retaliated because he is human

“The only fault I have with him is that he should know better that retaliation will cost him. I might have done worse than that in my day.

“We will lose him for a game or two and will miss his services but I have forgiven him. It could happen to anybody,” Stephen Keshi told Naijafootball247.com.

The coach added that the team is gradually taking shape and he is happy with the effort his boys are putting in.

“The boys did what they were supposed to do against Chad. We are all on the same page and I am happy they now know the direction I want the team to go,” Keshi told naijafootball247.com.
