Focus More On Domestic Players Than Foreign Pros, Bar. Green Tells Siasia


/ by Augustine Akhilomen
Nigeria Football Federation technical committee, Barrister Christopher Green says Dream Team coach, Samson Siasia should focus more on the players in his disposal rather than lamenting over the none release of the invited foreign players from their respective clubs in Europe ahead for the Rio Olympic Games Men's Football event.

The team's poor performances in recent friendly matches played so far has made Siasia developed some element of fear with just 23 days to the commencement of the showpiece in Brazil couple with the fact that he may not have a full complement of some of the invited foreign pros players.

Green insisted that the Football Federation had told him to invite players who he was sure would be released by their clubs in Europe.

"I don't think Samson Siasia should be complaining because it was clear when we asked him to select players who he thinks will be available for the Games. Besides, we told him to use players in the domestic league for now but must penciled down players in the foreign legion that he's sure their clubs will release them for the Rio Olympic Games," Green stated.

"Again the NFF are not relaxing too much because we are also working round the clock to ensure that clubs release some of these players for the games in Brazil. I am happy to inform you that we have started to get green light on the availability of the foreign pros and I am confident they will join the team before the games."
