Samson Siasia says he will bring discipline to the Super Eagles if he is given the job as head coach of Nigeria’s national team.

Siasia told that he is very optimistic that he will be the new head coach of the Super Eagles.

“I am optimistic. I’ve been waiting for this job for a long time and I believe I will get it.

He says he will add discipline and a tactical edge to Nigeria’s play.

“I will add discipline to the team so much that when I pick a player he will do so well in the game and justify his inclusion.

“I will also motivate the players because you know this job is not all about coaching. You must have a good personal relationship with the players,” Siasia said.

“I can motivate players to do well and I know I can make the difference. Nigerians want me and they think I am ready for the job but for me, I will say I know I am ready. I have gone through the ranks and can do it.”

He says he is only just waiting for the board of the Nigeria Football Federation to meet an announce a coach.

“I just pray that when the board members come back they will pick me, but if they don’t I will support whoever they pick because Its not a life or death thing.  I really want to coach the Eagles though.

Siasia played for Nigeria in the World Youth Championship in 1985 winning the silver medal.

He started plating for the senior national team in 197 and quit after the Franc 98 World Cup which he did not play but in his days he won the Africa Cup of Nations bronze in 1992 and gold in 1994.

As a coach he took Nigeria’s U 20 team to the final of the World Youth Championships in 2005 and the Olympic Games final in 2008.

Nigerians have since then and even before clamoured for Samson Siasia to coach the senio national team
