Former Super Eagles Coach, Samson Siasia was caught on camera pleading with the good people of Nigeria to donate 250,000 euros.
The ban came after he was tried and was found guilty of accepting bribes in order to hoax matches.
The former head coach has raised an appeal with FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the life ban, a source said.
In doing this, Siasia decided to talk to Nigerians to help him raise funds to defend himself and hopefully overturn the lifetime ban.
In the short video, the former Nigeria coach said;
“Good day Nigerians, my name is Samson Siasia. I am coming to you at a very difficult time in my life and career. I need to raise the sum of 250,000 euros. That’s a lot of money. So l am appealing to all well-meaning Nigerians, the sports-loving Nigerians to come to my aid for me to use these funds to defend myself against FIFA. We have this calculation, if 200,000 people can give 500 naira each, we could be able to reach our target. I wanna thank you as you do this. God bless you”
