Bribe with money, you leave the camp – Samson Siasia warns U-23 team
Samson Siasia assures only hard-work, dedication and discipline can eran players a place in the team
In the wake of allegations that Nigerian coaches collect money from players just so they could earn shirts, Siasia warned his boys during the training session at the FIFA Goal Project on Monday
''Do not give money to either my assistants or any agent in the hope of making this team. If I find out, the player will be dismissed from camp. I did not mandate anybody to collect money on my behalf,’’ Siasia said to the press
''Money cannot buy you a place in my team. Instead, your talent and discipline will take you to the top of your career.’’
The ex-international also assured players that there will be no preferential treatment for anybody in camp, stating clearly that fitness and form will determine their stay.
‘’You can only secure a place in the team with dedication, hard work and discipline.
‘’Nobody is superior to another player in this camp,’’ the 47 year-old 1994 Nations Cup winner affirmed.
