He was among the players who won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations title and has also had two stints as a coach of the national team.

He said that Despite his sacrifices, the now 53-year-old believes he is not getting what he deserves and was neglected by his country.

“I am a legend, I have played, broke my leg for this country, and also coached,” Siasia said as quoted by AllAfrica.

“If I played for America – yes I have an American passport but I played for Nigeria – if I was like Michael Jordan, [the American government] would take it upon themselves.

“The Nigerian government has not done well when it comes to my case.”
