Barely six months after the death of his wife of cancer, former Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi aka the Boss, has died. He was 54 years old.
He died in the early hours of Wednesday morning in Benin allegedly of cardiac arrest. Keshi had been in mourning since the death of his wife, Kate, on December 9 last year.
Keshi was billed to return to the United States Wednesday morning.
A statement by his family signed by Mr. Emmanuel Ado, confirmed the development, saying ‘Keshi has gone to join his darling wife’. He said the Keshi family is in deep grief and would want the people to pray for them at this trying time.
Keshi was recently relieved of his job as Super eagles coach and was succeeded by another former Super Eagles player Sunday Oliseh who later resigned from the office.
