Former Super Eagles Coach, Samson Siasia has revealed the magic that could offer him the needed funds required for him to battle World Soccer Government FIFA.

Siasia was banned from all football related activities for life following a match -fixing probe by the Zurich based soccer governing body, Fédération Internationale de Football Association in August 2019 after the adjudicatory chamber of their independent Ethics Committee found him guilty of having accepted to take bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics .
The 52-year-old, who insisted he was innocent, filed an appeal against FIFA at the Court of Arbitration for Sport against a life ban imposed on him by the world soccer governing body
The Olympic Silver and Bronze medallist also took out time to explain how people can donate to his fund raising course as he tried to raise the sum of $250,000 for his appeal.
“Good day Nigerians, My name is Samson Siasia.
I’m coming to you in a very difficult time of my life and career.
I need to raise the sum of two hundred and fifty thousand Euros, that is a lot of money.
“So I’m appealing to all well meaning Nigerians, the sports loving Nigerians to come to my aid, for me to use this funds to defend myself against FIFA.
We have this calculation, if two hundred thousand people can give five hundred naira, I think we could be able to reach our target.
I wanna thank you, as you do this, God bless you, Thank you!”
