Siasia Turns Beggar, Needs $99k To Appeal FIFA Life Ban

Siasia $99k Appeal FIFA Life Ban

Former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia needs ₦36m ($99k) to appeal the life ban sanction imposed on him by FIFA over alleged match-fixing.

Siasia, who revealed this on Wednesday, said failure to secure the money would affect his appeal of the life ban.

According to him, the inability to get the money before October 10 would mean that he can no longer appeal the sanction.

Siasia appealed to the Federal Government and Nigerians for help, reiterating that he was innocent of the allegations.

He said, “My mum is with kidnappers for almost three months, friends and my government have abandoned me. It costs ₦36m to start my appeal against the FIFA ban at CAS. It’s crazy. If I don’t pay before October 10, the appeal off.”

Siasia’s outcry is coming 25 days after the Nigeria Football Federation offered to give legal support to him.

The NFF said it had set up a team of lawyers to review the life ban sanction imposed on former Nigeria player.
