Former Nigeria head coach Samson Siasia has expressed his readiness to manage the Super Eagles if approached by the Nigeria Football Federation. The former Eagles striker was relieved of his job after failing to qualify the country for the 2012 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations staged in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.
The former U-20 team handler said he learnt from his past errors and would be willing to prove his doubters wrong if given a second chance.”I have been there before and I did my best. Yes, I am always ready to come back and continue from where I stopped,” Siasia was quoted as saying.
“Honestly, I will be delighted to come back if the Nigeria football authorities need my services.”I have learnt my lessons and this time round I am ready to shame my critics. I had no time to prove myself with the team.”I was there for only 10 months, which was not enough. It takes time to build a good team. Of course it is a thing of pride to be the coach once again,” he continued.
“I have always felt I’ve an unfinished business with the Super Eagles considering the way I left. We had a great team that I could have built on for the future, but I was denied the opportunity and I really felt bad about it,” he added.
