NFF hands off Siasia
Nigeria's success or failure under Samson Siasia's watch would be entirely the responsibility of the former international, according to the NFF.
Technical Committee chairman Christopher Green told KickOffNigeria.com that Siasia has been told that he although there will be monitoring, he will have full, unfettered powers over his team.
"We shall monitor the activities of our staff, our players and all that we have but that does not mean that we are going to interfere with his job. We are not going to interfere," Green told KickOffNigeria.com.
“We are going to give the coach a free hand and we have started by asking him to get his back room staff. That is free enough but that does not mean that we shall not monitor. We have a monitoring team of the Technical Committee.
“But he is at liberty because the truth of the matter is that we have told him and he has agreed that the successes and the failures of the team are his sole responsibility. He has accepted them so we should go to sleep. It is as good as that," Green disclosed.
Green, who was head of the committee that selected Siasia ahead of Keshi, said he had no regrets.
“Well I don’t think I have any reason to blame myself or we have any reason for blaming ourselves tomorrow for picking Siasia.
"We were faced with two very good coaches, two coaches we considered about the best in the country and it could have gone to any of them, but it favoured Siasia. So I don’t have any regrets and we are not going to have any regrets tomorrow."
