“Super Eagles messed me up”- Siasia

Former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia has finally opened up on his relationship with “star” players in the national team.

Siasia was sacked after the national team failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations in 2012.

He recently spoke on the controversy over the “refusal” of current coach, Stephen Keshi to invite certain players to the team.

Keshi has not invited Villarreal’s Ike Uche since January 2013 and Stoke City’s Osaze Odemwingie since 2012 and Siasia says if Keshi does not treat these players with a hard hand, they will mess him up.

“If Keshi says Ike Uche is stubborn or undisciplined, well, he has played under me before and I’ve never seen him do something that would make me tag him that way.

“But maybe he has done something under Keshi that is wrong, because Keshi wouldn’t just say something like that about a young man doing well in his club.

“Keshi is a very tough person. If you are not that tough, these guys will mess you up because they did the same thing to me,” Siasia said.

“I just feel Keshi needs Ike Uche to complement what Emmanuel Emenike does on the pitch. Emenike can’t do it alone upfront, but the choice is Keshi’s.”

The former Super Eagles gaffer also spoke on the recall of Stoke City’s Osaze Odemwingie to the national team.
“Osaze has done lots of crazy things but I think he has calmed down down.

“If he is doing well and they have talked to him and he decides to be responsible for the first time in his life, then I think he should be included in the team because we all make mistakes,” Siasia said.
