On my radar this morning, Stephen Ikechukwu Keshi, Nigeria's former Super Eagles coach, captain and football icon has passed on at the age of 54-years after complaining of heart beat irregularities. He is said to have died in a hospital in Benin City in the early hours of today, even though he had no prior heart condition.
Only two men have ever won the Africa Cup of Nations as a player and coach and Stephen Keshi is one of them. Over the 20-year period of his footie career, he played briefly in France, Belgium, the U.S.A and in Malaysia.
He is survived by his four children and mother, as he lost his wife to cancer just last year. What a tragedy.
Rest in peace "Big Boss" Coach Keshi.
