'I haven't been paid for 5months, I've begged my boys up till this point, I've done my best & now I'm tired - Samson Siasia explodes

Coach of Under 23 football team at Rio Olympics Samson Siasia has made a sensational and revealing rant at the NFF and Sports Ministry ahead of the quarter final clash against Denmark on Saturday.

The Bayelsa born coach made some startling revelations, saying he's been owed salary for five months and that he and his players have been disrespected by the Nigeria Football Federation and Sports Ministry all through out their Olympic journey.


According to Siasia, he has begged his players to carry on playing for the country up till this point but he is tired and that if the players decide to boycott the quarter final match against Denmark at Rio 2016, he'll support them.
“We have been disrespected from all angles – the sports ministry, the Nigeria Football Federation. Is that how you will treat your own children? We are not street kids,” former Super Eagles coach Siasia said on Brila FM Sports Radio on Friday morning. 
“We have only been paid allowances for 11 days. There is no match bonus. What of all the months we have been training in Nigeria and Atlanta? That’s not fair. I have not received my salary for the past five months. Everything is upside down and the boys don’t want to play anymore. Whatever they want to do, I’m with them. They are right for fighting for their rights.”
Siasia continued: “The country already has a bad image, but through football it has got some good image, but still they won’t let us play.
“I have begged these boys, but I cannot do more than what I have done to get this team up to this point. I have done my best and now I am tired.”
The NFF in a statement denied ordering the players to return their Jerseys back to the NFF's office in Nigeria after the Olympics, but Siasia also slammed the report, saying they were ordered to return their kits.
”The NFF ordered that they bring back the jerseys (from Brazil). Siji Lagunju (of the NFF technical department) was directed to bring the jerseys back to the NFF.”

I think the NFF needs a total overhaul because I don't see any reason they could owe the coach up to 5 months, or will the claim they too haven't been paid in the ministry?

I'M NOT SURPRISED, SO FAR AS IT'S IN THIS DOOMED COUNTRY

Siasia, please blame it on d immediate past GEJ adminstration and fallen petroleum prices....Nigeria is now a poor country on account of both reasons.The ultimate excuse nowadays for government inefficiency.

Unknown said...

Shame! Shame!! Shame!!!

NFF and so called Sports ministry in Nigeria r d worst ever and may d living Lord punish who so ever is doing dis to our football in Nigeria. How on earth will u do dis to our coach and players and expect them to perform mean while u want to pay foreign coach millions but can't take care of ur local coach and players.

Thank God for d adage 'whatsoever comes around goes around'. The so called NFF and d people tarnishing our images will surely face God judgement. U deprived a coach his salary and they smile to d bank monthly stealing our money and hard earned tax payers money.

It's well wit our souls.

LET ME HEAR WORD PLS! Afterall you and your corrupt NFF officials were the ones who sacked OLISEH. The man who was about bringing stability to NFF and orderliness. But because he wasn't as corrupt and greedy as all of you, you pursued him away.

HYPOCRISY IS WHEN YOU SUPPORTED APC GOVERNORS FOR CHALLENGING GEJ ADMINISTRATION IN COURT TO SHARE ALL THE NATIONAL COFFERS WHEN GEJ INTENDED TO SAVE FOR FUTURE, WHICH THE APC GOVERNORS LATER WON THE CASE. SURPRISINGLY, YOU TURN AROUND TODAY TO BLAME GEJ FOR NOT SAVING DURING RAINING PERIOD.

INSTEAD OF FIGHTING THE OPPOSITION PARTY BECAUSE YOU ARE IN POWER TODAY CONTINUITY SHOULD HAVE BE THE BEST WAY OUT. HOWEVER, BUHARI AND APC ARE BUSY KILLING NIGERIA WITH THEIR INCOMPETENCY AND MISMANAGEMENT THEN TURN AROUND TO PUT THE BLAMING ON GEJ AND PAST REGIME.

BUHARI AND APC ALSO RELY ON MAKING NOISES WITH FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION IN DECEIVING NIGERIANS TO COVER THEIR CLUELESS AND IT OBVIOUS THEY ARE CONFUSED AND RUNNING OUT OF LIES NOW. THE REASON IBB REMOVE BUHARI FROM POWER IN 1985 IS REPEATING ITSELF NOW THAT BUHARI HAS FAILED THE NATION ONCE AGAIN WITH THIS SECOND CHANCE AND NO AMOUNT OF HIS EXCUSES WILL COVER THIS FACT.

It's jonathan's fault oh!

He and his entourage ripped Nigeria to pieces..

President Buhari I just want you to kindly know that if Jesus tarries come 2019, My vote will be the one to KICK you out

Unknown said...

National embarrassment. FG can use taxpayers money to subsidize dollar for people going for Haj but money to pay people who are actually working for their money, the level of embarrassment cluelessness and lack of direction of the APC government is no longer something to joke about.170 million people should not have to continue to suffer at the hands of a few people who clearly do not know what they are doing.
