Head Coach of the Nigerian U-23 male football team, Samson Siasia has directed all clubs in the Nigeria Professional Football League requesting for the release of their players for league games to send their request to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
While speaking on Sunday, Siasia said such requests should be directed to the office of the General Secretary Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, as he (Siasia) has no power to release any player.
Expressing displeasure at the requests being made by these clubs for the release of their players, Coach Siasia said: "While I understand with them that they need their players for club engagements, I also want to remind them that they need to co-operate with us to qualify for the football event of the Rio Olympic Games, and the only way we can achieve this objective is by having all the players in camp to train so we can pick only the best legs."
The U-23 supremo disclosed that for now, no player will be released from the camp, and that aside those in the Super Eagles B that are in
Ouagadougou for today's CHAN qualifier against Etalons of Burkina Faso, all other players must report to camp and be part of the team's training session on Monday, October 26, or forget about reporting to camp altogether.
