Even as the impasse between Nigeria Football Federation, NFF and Dream team Head coach Samson Siasia lingers, the National Sports Commission, NSC, has assured that no stone would be left unturned in making sure that existing row was resolved.
Nigeria’s U-23 side are currently in camp preparing for 2016 Olympic qualifier which begins later this month in Senegal but the inability of employer, NFF to offset months of allowances owed players and officials of the team angered Siasia.
Not comfortable with the media outburst, the hierarchy of the country’s football body issued an official query to the former Super Eagles player and later fined him.
However, the Director General of NSC who confirmed that he has contacted both Siasia and NFF on the issue demanded immediate payment of Siasia’s salaries adding, “I think siasia’s salary should be paid and we are going to find out why it’s not been paid because salaries conceptually arise and in the contract there was no provision for dealing with delay.”
On why NFF might have descended on Siasia, Yakmut submitted “expression of being handed the commend rum and rules of administration are almost within an ample opportunity and if you extend their views beyond the side lines of a football match then the referee would definitely raise a red flag or a yellow flag.
“But things are not as bad as it’s being expressed within the two personalities. As a matter of fact, Sasia and I have spoken. I equally spoke with the president. They are only going to call him to order. They are not going to do any excessive disciplinary action.
“I’m not responsible to the night mares of under 23 than NFF because Olympic qualifier is their business but i want to tell you that we spent 343 million naira to win a bronze at the all African games and as business men, we have to have a re-think and we are considering that we would sit down with the administrators, we don’t have direct relationship with the coach.”
