Ex-Super Eagles Coach, Samson SiaSia, has distanced himself from the feud between his successor, Stephen Keshi, and some of his key players.
The Bayelsa State gaffer, who had a similar experience with some of the players during his tenure as national coach, refused to make any comment when approached by Vanguard Sports recently.
He opined that though he had a similar experience while in-charge of the squad, he will rather reserve his comments, adding that the officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are better placed to resolve the bone of contention between Keshi and the Super Eagles players.
“Keshi’s problem with some of the Super Eagles players is not my concern. The issue is better handled by the coach and the NFF. I cannot make any comment. I don’t want to be dragged into the issue. Keshi is in charge, he is the Head Coach whatever he tells the players they have to do,” he said.
On the successful outing of the Super Eagles at the last Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) held in South Africa, SiaSia, who is a former striker of the Super Eagles, gave kudos to the technical input of the coaching crew led by Keshi.
“It was a sweet victory for Nigeria. Considering that it came 19 years after we won it last makes it a very historic outing. Keshi has done well and my advice is that all Nigerians must queue up behind him to support his effort,” Siasia said.
