Do We Want Keshi?

Stephen Keshi is one of only two people who have won the Afcon as a player and as a coach.

He's led Nigeria to an impressive showing at the Confederations Cup and the Super Eagles qualified for the World cup without suffering even a single loss. The man has an impressive CV on this continent, it cannot be denied.

But could Keshi, a Nigerian, be successful as the coach of Bafana? Even if he won us some games, how popular could he hope to be? Would supporters be calling for his head as soon as he lost a match or two?

There is speculation that Safa want to hire him, and with Gordon Igesund's future to be decided this weekend, it wouldn't be unimaginable that Keshi will be on the shortlist of possible replacements.

With other possible nominees like Carlos Queiroz, Herve Renard and Ephraim "Shakes" Mashaba (the lone South African), Keshi would face some tough competition for the job.

But I say there are two major questions to be asked.

First, can we afford to pay him?

Also, and most importantly, do South Africans want Keshi?
