Nigerian Football Federation Sacks Samson Siasia

Oct 28, 2011- The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has sacked Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia, after several weeks of deliberations.

This was announced in a statement after a long meeting at the NFF Glass House headquarters in Abuja. The federation also directed its technical committee to meet next week and advice on a proper replacement.

The decision to sack Siasia, taken by the NFF Executive Committee which was headed by Aminu Maigari, was predicated on recommendations made by the Technical Committee.

The committee had, two weeks ago, recommended that Siasia be sacked after he failed to qualify Nigeria to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

“His dismissal has been ratified by the executive committee; we have acted upon the recommendation of the technical committee as we have also directed them to look for a proper replacement,” the statement said.

Siasia, who was hired in November 2010 with the immediate mandate to qualify Nigeria to at least the semi-final of the Nations Cup to be staged in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, failed to deliver as the Eagles were unable to qualify for the tournament.

Sources at the Glass House are bandying names like Stephen Keshi, Sunday Oliseh and Daniel Amokachi, who were all part of the USA 94′ squad with Siasia, as likely successors.

Siasia, who has enjoyed huge support from both Nigerian football fans and the NFF, had earlier said he will accept any decision reached. by the federation.

    Sacking Siasia is not the solution to the nigeria problem,searching for outstanding local football players is the answer.
    Siasia succesor will also be sack soon

    Siasia is very proud and arrogant. i believe he has learnt his lessons, the worst mistake NFF will make is to give the coaching job to Amokachi with no bad feelings attached he is not qualified for the super eagles job yet.
