Taye Taiwo Plotted to Get Stephen Keshi Sacked - Former Super Eagles Assistant Coach

By Olamide Oyetunji - Super Eagles legend Sylvanus Okpala has reacted to the claim that late Super Eagles Coach Stephen Okechukwu Keshi is dirty according to Taye Taiwo.
Few days ago, Taye Taiwo suggested that he quit the senior national team because of the antics and policies of Stephen Okechukwu Keshi who led the team to its third Africa Cup of Nations glory in 2013 in which 1980 Africa Cup of Nations winner, Sylvanus Okpala was an assistant manager to the Big Boss.
“I also read about Taiye Taiwo’s outburst in the papers. After our experience with him, we never invited him again.
“During our AFCON qualifier against Rwanda, Taiye didn’t play well in that game. Keshi complained after the match but the players went back to their rooms and started plotting how to remove Keshi. They never knew that Keshi’s room was the next to Taye’s room.
“Taye was telling other players that Keshi was shouting on him on the pitch and that he  will do to Keshi what he  did to other coaches and ensure that Keshi was sacked.

“Keshi was in his room listening to all their conversations. Now, most of them are now coming to talk about money. It wasn’t about money because I knew about these two issues involving Taiye and Uche.
Which coach will like to invite a player who wants him sacked in his team? It’s not possible . I am telling you what happened as an insider.

Elderson Echejeille and Juwon Oshaniwa then with Sharks FC of Port Harcourt became relevant left full backs in the team after what happened in Rwanda.

The game ended 0-0.
