Former Nigeria player and coach Samson Siasia has appealed a life ban imposed on him by FIFA.
Siasia was banned for life by FIFA for his involvement in match-fixing.
The former Nigerian coach has submitted his statement of appeal to CAS and is asking the court to stop the FIFA decision until his appeal is heard, according to sportsvillagesquare.com.
“This is a fight to finish for a man who loves to attack both as a celebrated player of the Eagles and a coach," remarked Mitchell Obi, celebrated journalist and President AIPS-Africa on the website.
“We can only pray that Samson’s appeal hit the right cords and he finally gets the fair hearing which never was particularly in a case for which he is being punished simply on ‘motivated decision.
“Will this appeal give Samson the real strength he needs to beat the Delilah called FIFA Ethics Committee. All eyes are on CAS”, remarked Obi.
Siasia is also battling to free his mother from kidnappers who are demanding a ransome fee of N50 million.
