Samson Siasia reacts to lifetime ban

Samson Siasia reacts to lifetime ban Just recently, it was reported that former Nigeria coach Samson Siasia was banned from all football activity for life after supposedly found guilty of accepting bribes to manipulate matches. In response to this, Siasia in a chat with experienced sports journalist, Colin Udoh quoted to have said, "I don't know anything about this.

I did nothing wrong and I have not received any letter from FIFA. "Furthermore, according to Udoh, 'Siasia also told me very angrily - that he was never invited to defend himself and is hearing about all of this for the first time'. It was even gathered that he is the third African to be banned by FIFA for his links to Perumal after former Sierra Leone FA official, Abu Bakarr Kabba and former Botswana FA official Mooketsi Kgotlele were suspended in July for five years and for life respectively but for the claims of denial.

Samson Siasia was also reportedly given a 50,000 fine following the formal ethics proceedings initiated against him on on February 11, 2019. Before being handed the life ban “from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level". Many arguments sprang up in relation to this matter while some saw it as an unfair treatment judging from the fact that Siasia had won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria as a player and was one of the successful national youth team coaches in the country so this was not a good way to compensate him while other Nigerians saw the news about Siasia's ban as a right course of action which will serve as an example to others.

Samson Siasia (born 14 August 1967) is a Nigerian former football striker and the former head coach of the Nigerian Men's National football team (also known by their nickname The Super Eagles) from 2010 to October 2011. He was reappointed in 2016.
