Siasia Resigns As Nigeria U-23 Football Team Coach

Samson Siasia has resigned as the coach of Nigeria’s U-23 football team because of what he describes as “a disrespectful system”.

Siasia, the most decorated African coach at the Rio-Olympics, having also won a silver medal in Beijing in 2008, claims to have gone unpaid for five months by the Nigeria Football Federation.

He said he had quit football in Nigeria after “a turbulent and incredible campaign in Brazil.”


  1. Oh no! 5months? This is very sad! No one deserves to work and not getting paid. Well, good luck Siasia and thanks for all you do.

  2. 5 months and you are resigning? When some people haven't received pay for 12 months... I will quit if I were in his shoes.

  3. I have not been paid for 13months...about to walkout too.
