Samson Siasia, the Head Coach of the Nigerian U-23 team has revealed that officials are suffering in the United States due to the non-payment of their salaries for five months by the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF.
The U-23 Head Coach is currently in Atlanta, Georgia with his squad in preparation for the Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil which is scheduled to kick off next month.
Siasia said: “We are suffering in Atlanta. We have not received any money since we arrived this training camp. I have not been paid for the past five months.
“We will not hold the country to ransom by threatening not to play our matches, but the government has to come to our rescue.
“I know that by the time the Olympics will be over, our monies will not be paid.” he lamented.
