Siasia slams Sports minister, FG, says "I'm done with Nigeria"
Coach of the bronze winning Super Eagles U-23 men's football side at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Brazil, Samson Siasia, says he is no longer interested in coaching any of Nigeria's national sides.
Siasia who recently blasted a lawmaker for critisizing his team over their acceptance of a $390k cash guft from a Japanese surgeon, Katsuya Takasu, told Vanguard on Saturday:
"My next step is that I am done with Nigeria for now. 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.
Even before I returned from the Olympics, the only car they gave me, they took it away from my wife. That is just awesome. That is not how to treat someone who was out there seeking glory for the nation. Let them eat their national team."
