Siasia Threatens To Quit

samson siasiaSUPER Eagles’ chief coach, Samson Siasia, is ready to quit the national team, barely three weeks after landing the job due to what he calls officials’ interference.

Siasia told a source in Holland that the issue of assistants’ appointment remains a bone of contention between him and the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.

”All the pledge of a freehand for Siasia appears to be unrealistic. There are a number of ex-internationals the NFF expects to form the coaching crew of the Super Eagles but who are not in the plans of Siasia. On the other hand, there are some ex-internationals who Siasia wants but whom the NFF does not like due to their antecedents in the national team,” he said

The source, a close ally to Siasia’s assistant, Kalika, has asked that Kalika should watch events as it unfolds because Siasia might be forced to throw in the towel if the situation persists.

Meanwhile, a member of the Technical Committee of the NFF, informed Saturday Tribunesports that there won’t be any problem between Siasia and the Federation.

”At the beginning like this, things must be sought out,” he said.

”We are both operating according to the letters of the contract. Siasia needs assistants but we have to rub minds first and give Siasia the lattitude to pick whoever he wants. However, he has to learn to put his demands in formal writing and justify them. He is the people’s choice, so the NFF will not do anything to distract him.”

  • NFF we trust in u 2 make best decision for us. You have done that by employing Siasia. Let us allow Siasia to make decision he believe will allow him attain success. After such permit if he perform otherwise, then we do otherwise.

  • NFF we can do it, please help us. Siasia is the choice of all, let us give him a free hand to operate, though i know that the stupid factor that he is not a white will always limit his operations but please NFF don’t let it be too open to the world for integrity purposes. One NIGERIA!!!
