How NFF, friends deserted me during my FIFA Ban – Siasia

Former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia has accused the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and some of his friends of abandoning him during his Fifa ban.

He stated this after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) reduced his ban to five years, with a fine of CHF 50,000 (£39,000/$54,000/€45,000) also cancelled.

Former Nigeria forward and coach Siasia was hammered by Fifa after an investigation into match-fixer Wilson Raj Perumal.

Reacting to the latest development, Siaone as he’s fondly called while briefing newsmen in Abuja stated that he was abandoned by those he considered his friends and the NFF, CompleteSports writes.

“Even my close friends abandoned me. Even, for the Legends Game organised by FIFA, I have not been invited again.

“I don’t know what I did to them even when I wasn’t guilty of what I was accused of,” he said.

“When the life ban pronouncement was first declared by FIFA, I met with the Minister of Youth and Sports Development who barely resumed office then and briefed him, But all the minister could say was that there was no money.

“But I have invested in human beings in this country by training lots of young players who are stars today.

“How will I fight FIFA? I don’t have that strength, but the government can stand up and stand for me. But everyone left me in the dark,” he said.
