Former super eagls boss Samson siasia, has maintained his innocence and claimed he never met notorious match fixer Wilson Raj Perumal.
Siasia stated the discussions he had with Perumal was over a job contract in Australia. But both parties couldn’t reach an agreement in respect to the job.
“I have never met him before in my life. I got an email about a job in Australia. The correspondence were all through emails. He talked about getting me a job as a Coach and he discussed the terms. That was all that happened,” Siasia confirmed.
“We didn’t come to an agreement because he said he couldn’t pay what I wanted as sign-on and salary, but he couldn’t meet with my terms, so he hired someone else.”
Perumal was banned for life by the world governing body and Siasia was also handed a life ban in August 2019.
Siasia needs ₦36m to fight the case and has been appealing for funds with his appeal coming up on March 19 in Zurich.
