Focus More On Domestic Players Than Foreign Pros, Bar. Green Tells Siasia

Nigeria
Football Federation technical committee, Barrister Christopher Green says Dream
Team coach, Samson Siasia should focus more on the players in his disposal
rather than lamenting over the none release of the invited foreign players from
their respective clubs in Europe ahead for the Rio Olympic Games Men’s Football
event.

The
team’s poor performances in recent friendly matches played so far has made
Siasia developed some element of fear with just 23 days to the commencement of
the showpiece in Brazil couple with the fact that he may not have a full complement
of some of the invited foreign pros players.
Green
insisted that the Football Federation had told him to invite players who he was
sure would be released by their clubs in Europe.
“I
don’t think Samson Siasia should be complaining because it was clear when we
asked him to select players who he thinks will be available for the Games.
Besides, we told him to use players in the domestic league for now but must penciled
down players in the foreign legion that he’s sure their clubs will release them
for the Rio Olympic Games,” Green stated.
“Again
the NFF are not relaxing too much because we are also working round the clock
to ensure that clubs release some of these players for the games in Brazil. I
am happy to inform you that we have started to get green light on the
availability of the foreign pros and I am confident they will join the team
before the games.”
