Former Nigeria national team coach Samson Siasia has voiced his dissatisfaction with the perceived inequalities in the treatment of local coaches compared to their foreign counterparts within the Super Eagles setup. Siasia’s remarks shed light on longstanding issues surrounding the Nigerian Football Federation’s (NFF) approach to coaching appointments and remuneration.

In a candid assessment of the situation, Siasia highlighted the discrepancies in the treatment afforded to local selectors, emphasizing that they often do not receive the same level of support and resources as their foreign counterparts.

“When you lose a match, they thank you. It is reality. But when foreigners come, they have more time and are better paid,” Siasia lamented during an interview with local media outlets, drawing attention to the contrasting treatment experienced by Nigerian coaches.

Central to Siasia’s concerns is the disparity in salaries between local and foreign coaches. According to his observations, foreign coaches command significantly higher salaries, with figures reaching up to $50,000 per month, whereas local coaches receive a fraction of that amount, typically around N1,000,000.

The stark contrast in remuneration underscores broader issues of equity and fairness within the Nigerian football landscape, with local coaches often feeling undervalued and marginalized in comparison to their foreign counterparts.

Siasia’s remarks resonate within the football community, sparking conversations about the need for greater recognition and support for local coaching talent in Nigeria.

As a former Nigerian international and coach, his insights carry weight and serve as a rallying cry for reform within the NFF.

Amid growing calls for change, the spotlight now falls on the NFF to address these concerns and ensure that all coaches, regardless of nationality, are afforded equal opportunities and resources to succeed.
