Keshi called it time after the 2013 African Cup of Nations champions (AFCON) winners bowed out of the 2014 FIFA World Cup after a 2-0 defeat at the hands of 1998 champions France in the last round of 16.
On announcing his decision to quit, Keshi claimed that he needed to spend more time with his family.
According to various media reports, Keshi is more likely coming to take over the vacant Bafana Bafana coaching job. Keshi and former Iranian coach, Carlos Quiroz were reportedly the front runners for the post.
Interestingly, both Keshi and Quiroz have quit their jobs.
The South African Football Association (SAFA) has already indicated that they will not renew Gordon Igesund’s contract which comes to an end next month.
The top five list to take over Bafana Bafana include Quieroz, Keshi, Dutchman Dirk Advocaat and Frank Rijkaard and Italian veteran Giovanni Trapattoni.
