MAN of the moment, Samson Siasia still savouring his silver exploits in the World Youth Championship, no longer has a contract with the Nigeria Football Association. Top officials of the NFA certain that Siasia would not do well at the FIFA event had tied his contract to June 25 - the last day of the FIFA Championship.

As Nigerians celebrate his feat, the NFA has described as speculations news linking him to assist Augustine Eguavoen in the Super Eagles or for him to handle the Olympic team. Chairman of NFA, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima confirmed yesterday that the board of the NFA has no immediate assignment for the Flying Eagles coach and dismissed reports of his assisting Eguavoen or handling the Olympic team as speculations.

" To the best of my knowledge, all reports about his becoming the assistant to Eguavoen or handling the Olympic team are speculations. I appreciate the love Nigerians have shown towards him and his team but these reports are mere flying of kites by his faithful". Galadima said that they had tied coaches to the national team to contracts noting that Siasia’s contract expired with the final whistle of the World Youth Championship. "It is the board that will now determine whether to renew his contract or not. And as I am speaking with you, the board has not met, so you see why I say that other reports on Siasia are mere speculation. But once we meet, we shall definitely take a decision on him based on his performance.

For now, his contract has expired", the FA boss emphasised. Meanwhile, former Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, Clemens Westerhof has told Nigerians to be good losers and not bring in racism or blame the referee for their ouster in the final. "The referee is bound to make some human error but he was absolutely fair in awarding those two penalties against Nigeria.

The defenders were reckless in hacking down harmless players in a tight corner of the box. I blow my kiss to Siasia and his wards. They were wonderful. I want Nigerians to be wonderful people in defeat, too", the Dutch who is on a second missionary journey to handle a College of Excellence Academy in Ilorin, Kwara State said.
