Samson Siasia, former Super Eagles coach said he has been losing sleep over the form of Nigerian internationals ahead of the next month’s Russia 2018 back to back World Cup qualifiers between the Eagles and the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.
Siasia speaking yesterday in Atlanta, USA said, “I don’t want to mention names but you would agree with me that most of our players are not in good shape. That to me is a problem Rohr would have to find a way to deal with when the Eagles get into camp. In spite of that challenge, I m confident we would get the result we need to eventually qualify for the World Cup. As a patriotic Nigerian I m praying for the team and it is my desire to see them go all the way.”
Talk about him been out of contact, he said “I m not desperate for a new coaching job. I have got offers from some clubs and even from the Rwanda FA. But I turned down the offers because I don’t want to go into a job I would regret going into. Rwanda FA interviewed me via Skype which to me was not the best. They now said I should buy myself a ticket to Kigali after which they will give me a refund. That to me was not a good way to start a coaching relationship. An FA that truly wants a coach would right from day one respect the coach. It is only a hungry coach that would jump at any offer.”
