FIFA hands life ban to former Nigerian coach Samson Siasia over bribery and match fixing

FIFA has handed a life ban to former Nigerian international and ex coach of the Super Eagles, Samson Siasia.

Siasia was found guilty on breaching FIFA rules for accepting bribes to fix matches and has been handed a life ban from all football related activities including coaching and administrative.

The ban comes from an ongoing ‘large-scale investigation’ Fifa is conducting into the behaviour of Wilson Raj Perumal, a convicted match-fixer from Singapore.
He is the third African to be banned by Fifa for his links to Perumal after former Sierra Leone FA official Abu Bakarr Kabba and former Botswana FA official Mooketsi Kgotlele were suspended in July for five years and for life respectively.
Samson Siasia won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria, with over 50 caps and scored 16 goals.
