Scotland Manager, Gordon Strachan caused a stir in the Nigerian dressing room moments before the game against his side in an international friendly, when he presented his Nigerian counterpart, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi, with a branded brandy, with the name ‘Famous Keshi’.
When Keshi received the gift in the presence of Team Administrator, Dayo Enebi Achor and Media Officer Ben Alaiya he was shocked to the marrow and wished he could reciprocate it immediately. “This is true friendship in football and we all, especially Nigerians must start to imbibe this type of gesture” he declared.
He added that someday he would find an opportunity to reciprocate. “Imagine a fellow coach branding my name in a drink. It has never happened in my entire life, please help me thank him” an emotional Keshi said in the Nigerian dressing room.
