Siasia to appeal FIFA Ban, set to hold World Press conference Today


Former Super Eagles Coach Samson Siasia says he will appeal the life ban imposed on him by World Football governing body, FIFA.

Siasia, 52, was alleged to have agreed to a bribe offer some years back, and FIFA yesterday in a release banned the former Coach and slapped him with a hefty fine of fifty thousand Swiss Franc.
However, sources who got in touch with Siasia have reported that the coach was shocked on seeing the FIFA correspondence and said he was not contacted before now.
FIFA though confirmed that a mail was sent to Siasia in relation with the allegations and the ban.
The Olympic Silver medal-winning Coach will however address the FIFA ban at a Press conference planned for the Moshood Abiola International Stadium, Abuja, Today.
It is expected that Siasia will clear the air by telling his side to the bribery allegation, plans to appeal and exonerate himself of any wrongdoing.
It will be recalled that his mother is still in the den of kidnappers .
