Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia filmed a video pleading with Nigerians to donate 250,000 euros to appeal FIFA ban.
The former football striker was banned for life from participating in all football matches by the world football governing body, FIFA in 2019 after he was found guilty of accepting bribes in order to manipulate matches.
He filed an appeal with FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the life ban.
Siasia is appealing for funds to defend himself and overturn verdict.
In a video, the former coach said; “Good day Nigerians, my name is Samson Siasia. I am coming to you at a very difficult time in my life and career. I need to raise the sum of 250,000 euros. That’s a lot of money. So I am appealing to all well-meaning Nigerians, the sports-loving Nigerians to come to my aid for me to use these funds to defend myself against FIFA. We have this calculation, if 200,000 people can give 500 naira each, we could be able to reach our target. I wanna thank you as you do this. God bless you”.
