The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has finally reacted to the life ban placed on Super Eagles former coach, Samson Siasia, Igbere TV reports.

Igbere TV had reported that the world football governing body, on Friday, banned Siasia from football for live over bribery and manipulation of matches.

Reacting in a statement obtained by Igbere TV on Monday, Acting NFF President, Seyi Akinwunmi said the body was shocked by the life ban verdict on the former national coach, vowing to overturn it.

He said that the FIFA report had been given to NFF’s lawyers “to study and provide legal advice to the federation,” adding that Siasia “gave his all for Nigeria.”

Full Statement,

“The NFF was shocked to learn of the investigation and subsequent decision by the FIFA Ethics Committee (Adjudicatory Chamber) placing a life ban on Mr. Samson Siasia.

“He is a football legend but most importantly he is a Nigerian.

“We respect the FIFA processes”, said Akinwunmi but added, “the least we as a Federation can do is empathise with him at this time make ourselves available to him and hope that in some way he is able to clear his name.”
