Historic Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi has dedicated Nigeria's Africa Cup of Nations triumph to all indigenous Nigerian coaches, who were treated with lack of respect by sports administrators and fans.

Speaking after the Eagles defeated Burkina Faso 1-0 in the final of the tournament last night, Keshi said that he was fulfilled that his dream of putting smiles on the faces of Nigerians had come true with the team's success in South Africa.

"It is mainly for my nation. My dream was to make Nigerians happy. We are not there yet. This is a work in progress but I want to dedicate this to all Nigerian coaches, who have been praying for this. In Africa, they give you a job today and want you to win the World Cup the next day. This cannot work. You have to give local coaches a chance", said Keshi, who was not done with his indictment of football administrators, who he said were not patient enough with local coaches.

"To succeed, we need time and I thank God that all the years of waiting have finally ended. Our people do not know how to give you time to get your programme through. These things take time but people seem not to care about it. But I thank God for seeing us through", he said.
