Nigeria, (AN24) – Former Super Eagles and Dream Team VI coach, Samson Siasia, has revealed why he is currently unemployed despite leading Nigeria to Olympic Bronze medal in Brazil.
Sia One has he is fondly called by his supporters, insisted that is unemployed because he failed to qualify Nigeria for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
Recall that Siasia was appointed as a caretaker coach to lead the Eagles in the AFCON qualifiers against Egypt in March this year, after Sunday Oliseh resigned from the role, but failed to qualify Nigeria for the tournament after Egypt forced Nigeria to a 1-1 draw in Kaduna, before they won the return leg 1-0 in Alexandria, clinching the 2017 AFCON ticket from the group.
Lamenting, Siasia told AfricanFootball: “I do not have job now because I did not qualify Nigeria to the AFCON,” Siasia told AfricanFootball.
“It has shown that anytime I have taken a point midway, I do not do well.
“When I have started a job, I have always finished well.” He said.
Meanwhile Siasia’s contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), ended after the Olympics in Brazil where he led Nigeria to her only media in the competition.
