Samson Siasia gives NFF two weeks ultimatum to pay him his owed salary

Rio Olympics Bronze winning coach Samson Siasia has given the Nigeria Football Federation a two weeks ultimatum to pay him all his owed salaries or he will sit in the NFF’s Abuja office until he’s paid. Siasia signed a two year contract with the NFF which ended this summer after he led the Under 23 team to win a Bronze medal at Rio 2016 but complained that he was owed for 5 months and at even one point in time during the Rio Olympics threatened to join his players on a strike.

“I have given them a two-week ultimatum to me pay me or I will sit inside the NFF office in Abuja until I get paid,” Siasia told BBC Sports. “The national team is preparing for a World Cup qualifier and to be honest my unhealthy distractions are the last thing they need right now.”
