Samson Siasia Sacked!

The Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has fired Samson Siasia, the Head Coach of the Super Eagles. The Technical Committee of the NFF had earlier recommended the sack and forwarded it to the Executive Committee.
At the meeting held on Friday, the Executive Committee adopted the Technical Committee’s recommendation that Siasia should be sacked for failing to meet the terms of his contract and that the penalty clause in the contract should be respected. The clause is that the NFF is at Liberty to terminate Siasia’s contract if he fails to qualify for the semi-finals of the 2012 CAF African Nations Cup. The team however failed to qualify for the tournament, no thanks to a 2-2 draw with the Syli Nationale of Guinea a few weeks ago.
The NFF Executive Committee also directed the Technical Committee to meet next week to recommend a replacement for the sacked coach. Three of Siasia’s team mates in the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi, Daniel Amokachi and Sunday Oliseh have already indicated their intention to coach the senior national team.
