Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia has declared himself innocent of allegation levelled against him by fifa
Siasia stated this at a world press conference in Abuja where he said the allegation against him does not hold water but his lawyer,austin otah has filed a case against FIFA and Court of Arbitration for Sports, (CAS)
Siasia reiterated his innocence and promised to do everything to clear his name while calling on nigerians to pray for him especially with his mother still under captivity .
`while i may not be able to publicly divulge the details and specifics,i think it fit to inform you that i have appealed against FIFA’s decision and you all will probably hear the results like you heard about the ban.
i am currently taking legal advice.my lawyer,austin otah has been liaising with the NFF and their counsel.
he went further to say ‘i thank everyone who has supported me in one way or the other.i must state that this is the most trying period of my life;i am still dealing with the pain and challenges of my mother being kidnapped again and fighting to secure her release.
i urge the nation to support me with prayers,goodwill and support of all kinds.the demands are very heavy’
the allegation against him was said to have transpired in 2010
