Life Ban: Siasia yet to raise N36m, begs CAS to extend deadline

Former Super Eagles chief coach, Samson Siasia has pleaded with the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) in Switzerland to extend the October 10 deadline given to him to pay N36m before his case can be entertained.

Siasia needs more time

The ex-Super Eagles player had gone to the sports arbitration panel to challenge the life ban imposed on him by the Federation of International Football (FIFA) in August.

He needs a 100,000 Swiss Francs which translates into N36m to file the case at CAS.

“The situation is not good,” said Siasia.

Consequently, Siasia’s lawyers have approached CAS for an extension with 24 hours to the deadline.

“There is no money anywhere. So, my lawyers have written (to CAS) for extension of the date. Hopefully, we’ll get good response from them,” he added.
