Olympics-bound Dream Team Coach Samson Siasia begs NFF to pay him his five-month salary arrears

By Daily Sports on July 28, 2016

Samson Siasia, U-23 coach, has appealed to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to pay his salaries and offset the backlog of bonuses and allowances owed him and his players, with just over a week to the start of the Rio Games in Brazil.

The former Nigeria international has not been paid for months, which he has now confirmed.

He said: “I am appealing to the NFF and the Sports Ministry to pay our salaries,” Siasia said in a radio interview.

Siasia also posited that if his salaries were not paid before the Games, they will end up not being paid at all.

“After the Olympics, that money will just go on voice mail,” Siasia said, meaning he will not be paid afterwards.

The situation is similar to other coaches of various national teams, as Emmanuel Amuneke, the national U-20 coach’s salaries are held.

Immediate past Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh is also claiming that he was being owed by the NFF, even though the Glass House has hotly disputed the claim. (Independent)
