Nigeria Footballer Siasia Need N36m

Super Eagles player, Samson Siasia, needs N36m to appeal the life ban sanction imposed on him by FIFA over alleged match-fixing.

Samson, disclose this on Wednesday, according to him, failure to secure the money would affect his appeal of the life ban.

He added that inability to get the money before October 10 would mean that he can no longer appeal the sanction.

Siasia appealed to the Federal Government and Nigerians for help, reiterating that he was innocent of the allegations.

He said, "My mum is with kidnappers for almost three months, friends and my government have abandoned me. It costs N36m to start my appeal against FIFA ban at CAS. It's crazy. If I don't pay before October 10, the appeal off."
