‘I will Fight this and Clear my Name’ – Siasia reacts to Fifa Ban

Former Super Eagles Coach, Samson Siasia, has reacted to his stunning life ban from all football-related activities by FIFA.

In an extraordinary development, world football governing body, Fifa, announced on Friday that it banned Siasia and fined him $50,000 after its ethics panel found him guilty of taking bribes in connection with match fixing.

As reaction pour in from the country, sports presenter and former Press Officer of the Super Eagles, Colin Udoh, who spoke with Siasia to get his reaction, said the 1994 AFCON winner reacted angrily to the ban.

Colin wrote via his verified Twitter handle @ColinUdoh:

I have just spoken to Siasia. His words “I don’t know anything about this. I did nothing wrong and I have not received any letter from FIFA.” He will fight this and clear his name

“Siasia also told me – very angrily – that he was never invited to defend himself and is hearing about all of this for the first time.”
