Former Nigeria captain and coach Stephen Keshi has passed away.
‘Big Boss’ reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest in the early hours of this morning. He was 54.
Keshi was one of only two people to have won the Africa Cup of Nations as a player and a coach – Mahmoud El-Gohary of Egypt being the other.
As a player he had won 64 caps playing the Super Eagles as a central defender.
Up until last week he was linked with the Orlando Pirates job, though he subsequently denied those rumours.
