Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia has reacted to the news of his being ban by FIFA, following accusation by the world soccer ruling body .He said FIFA was dishing out punishment without contacting him.
Siasia reacted to the news on social media,vowing to fight to clear his name.
The Under 23 Coach wondered how someone can be charged and found guilty of an allegation without the accused person not being notified of the charges levelled on him.
According to him, claims by FIFA that a letter to that effect has been dispatched to him was denied by Siasia,who is insisting that he has not done anything wrong.
“I am shocked with FIFA ban, I was never questioned by FIFA.
“I don’t know anything about this. I did nothing wrong and I have not received any letter from FIFA,” he said.
Siasia, who led Nigeria’s Olympic team to Silver Medal finish in 2016, insisted he was hearing about the allegation and the said decision for the first time.
There are strong indications that the former Super Eagles star will be appealing the decision.
Sources say Siasia may drag FIFA to Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS)
over the matter.
