Former coach of Nigeria U23 Eagles who won bronze at the just concluded 2016 Olympics in Rio, Brazil, Samson Siasia, has blasted the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and Sports Ministry over the non payment of his salary.
Speaking on his quitting as coach of the team, Siasia said today:
"This is not really resignation; my contract was arranged to end with the Olympics. And so the contract has ended.
"What is very important is that I get every kobo that I am owed. I need the money now than ever and I believe I have really endured and I have been cooperative.
"I spoke with a reporter but I guess the one who are referring to was extracted from the interview I granted somebody else. What I was asked was my entire story at the Olympics and this included Atlanta camping.
"Of course a lot of things happened that I can’t be really happy about especially the way the team was portrayed. But that is over as my contract has also actually ended. What is left now is my cash and that is very, very important."
