As part of his disciplinary measures towards ensuring that players conform to laid down rules, Super Eagles Chief Coach, Stephen Keshi has banned the use of mobile phones during meal times.

An impeccable source revealed to SportingLife that the ban extends to officials of the team whom the "Big Boss" believes must lead by example at all times.

"We leave our handsets in our rooms anytime we go to eat, whether it is lunch, breakfast or dinner. It is a taboo to be found with your handset while eating and if caught you can be punished by the appropriate officers. It is that serious and no one is taking it for granted," said the official.

Keshi, an ex-international and longest serving captain of the national team believes, players must display etiquette at all times.

Furthermore no member of the team is allowed to converse while eating.

"You would recall that the coach had banned the wearing of earrings and sagging of trousers when in camp," added the official.

Eagles who have just returned from Malawi where they played a 1-1 draw face Rwanda this Saturday in a 2013 Nations Cup qualifier in Calabar.

If he had said no using of phone during training to prevent distraction it would be understandable, but not taking your phones while eating? Are they going to eat with the phone or snap the food,what if they have important calls.

Good one especially for the ban on wearing of earrings and sagging their trousers. They should be humble and stop showing pribe if they want God to lift them high. He should also ban the useless hair style & hair curls too.

Re: Keshi Bans Use Of Mobile Phones At Meals by Nobody: 10:29am On Jun 13, 2012
What has cellphones @dinner got to do with pitch-performance brainless/clueless fellow, you treat players like inmates, how can they play in a quality state of mind ? you d' be better as a primary school head-master. Mchteeeew

coach's inspirational & cordial relationship with players bring out the best commitment in them, NOT authoritative rule.

learn ur table manners. Don't talk while eating. Those guys need to be disciplined. U know say their money dey enter their head well well so as a result of that, they fit dey make or answer irritating calls without respect in front of their coacheee like answering their girlfriends and talking some immoral thrash in his presence.

Sounds like 19th century emperor if you ask me. Phones while eating and wearing earrings are normal thing. All we need is results not morality.

barring phone use is not the problem. the truth is that you lack the technical know-how to lead the eagles, just look how fat you are.how can you handle your players when you cannot even train yourself? happy you are seeing what others saw so you have been given a chance to proof your mantle with nothing to proof upon all the noise about playing the leather game to the highest level. the answer still remains that Nigeria needs a technical adviser that understands the modern game not an opportunist that talk talk talk.we need the era of westerhorf and we can only achieve that with a sound technical adviser and more preferably a DUTCH coach.

I see nothing wrong with what Keshi has done. . . its all part of the training, all part of learning to be disciplined and behaving properly - both off and on the field of play. Such measures should be encouraged because ultimately, it is for the good of the players as individuals; the image they will potray as role models and ambassadors of Nigeria and for the greater good of the game!
