Contrary to speculations in the media that national U-23 team coach, Samson Siasia, would soon be sent packing, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), through a member of its Technical Committee, Ahmed Yusuf, says that the football house has no intention of sacking the Olympic silver medal-winning coach.

Fresh maintained that reports in the media which suggested the impending sack of Siasia sequel to media interviews on the state of affairs in the U-23 team’s camp were a clear misrepresentation of facts.

According to him, “There has never been a time we in the technical committee or at the executive committee level discussed any such thing. I am a member of both committees and never has that come up for discussion.”

However, Fresh opened up that Siasia was issued a query after what was taken as an affront against his employers.

He added that, “But that was not enough for the media to suggest that it would lead to Siasia’s sack.

“Siasia was queried and he has since answered to the query. It is a normal administrative procedure which should not call for speculations that are unfounded. There is no intention to sack Siasia.”
