NFF to Samson Siasia: "You’re an ingrate, we will expose you"

A top official of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has threatened to expose Samson Siasia, if he continues to castigate the controversial football house.

Siasia, who had won bronze with Nigeria’s U-23 team at the 2016 Olympics, said he is “done” with the management of Nigerian football.

The coach revealed he has not been contacted by any staff of the Sports Ministry or Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), since he arrived from the Games.

“My next step is that I am done with Nigeria for now,” Siasia told Vanguard. “You can’t keep going to a place where they don’t appreciate you. It does not worth it. Sometimes it is not about the money but the approach.

“They seem not to appreciate the sacrifices. I know how much I have sacrificed since the team began camping two years ago. How can you keep going to people who don’t appreciate you?

“It does not make sense, so I am done for now. I have to go somewhere else where they will appreciate what I have done and what I can do and pay me the respect that I deserve.”

Reacting to Siasia's statement, the unnamed official told Own Goal Nigeria that:
“We have endured Siasia’s excesses, he knows we have our own side of the story he is telling to the press. He shouldn’t forget that our recent spate of failure to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations was started by him.

“He is an ingrate, we gave him the chance to relaunch himself with the U-23 but he showed us he is still the same person, we know how some players were selected both for the Super Eagles in the two games he handled and also for the U23s, he should just keep shut.

“We have facts to show he was involved in some dealings that led to our failures at tournaments; as a matter of fact, go and ask any board member, we received more petitions about Siasia than any other coach, he knows it.

“If he doesn’t keep shut, we will shame him and end his coaching career, a team that should have won gold, he selected players based on favoritism and he wants us to celebrate bronze with him; we are wiser than that.”

    Is NFF still have credible people or not? We knew how Siasia struggle to assembled the team that play 2005 junior world cup that brought Taye Taiwo & Mikel Obi to limelight that play in the final against Argentina with the likes of Messi, Aguero & Di Maria then Nigeria team was second in that tournament. Samson Siasia we know, Siasia we trust.
