I was wrongly banned by FIFA- Siasia laments

Former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia, says he has been wrongly accused, banned and fined by FIFA for an offence he never committed.

Siasia was fined fifty thousand dollars and banned for life by FIFA for allegedly agreeing to ‘the manipulation of matches’ for betting purposes.

The former Super Eagles striker, who lamented how FIFA had frustrated his effort to clear his name from the embarrassing claims, revealed that FIFA had so far not presented proof to back its claims that he indulged in the allegations levelled against him.

He stated that his lawyers had informed him that the Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS, had made a decision which favoured FIFA and prejudiced him to strike out his claim for compensation.
