You're An Ingrate & We Will Expose You, NFF Fires Back At Siasia

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

Siasia, who recently won bronze with Nigeria’s U-23 team at the 2016 Olympics, has said he is “done” working for Nigeria.

It will be recalled that Siasia 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 had told Vanguard. Continue...

“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.”

In response, the unnamed official toldOwnGoalNigeria.com: “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-23s 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.”

    1. NFF has to be the most unprofessional body ever. that write up is a disgrace to Nigeria. what happened to P.R? "he should just keep shut" what the hell? are they 5?
      So they knew he was picking according to favouritism and did nothing? they are only castigating themselves and not him.
      the players would have won gold ke? With everything they put them through? I dislike Nigeria and Nigerians.

  3. The unnamed official of the NFF should shut his or her mouth. Was it Siasia that left the U23 players stranded in Atlanta preparatory for the Olympics? is Siasia the reason why salaries and match bonuses have not been paid by the shameless NFF? As a nation we have a problem of comparing apples with grapes. Can the real issues be addressed? The man has cited unpaid salaries amongst others as his reason for resigning. Can the shameless NFF address that! Siasia deserves to be respected for what he has done. Whether he favoured certain players above others is immaterial.

  6. foolish idiots. he is the coach, he reserves the right of favoritism not the board. if they wre duly paying him his salaries as at when due and approved his training programme there will be no issue. Is it because they threw players at him that he did not take? good riddance to bad rubbish. every coach loves working with players he knows and is comfortable with and his is no exception. Shikena
