Samson Siasia on Saturday resigned as the coach of Nigeria’s U-23 football team over what he describes as “a disrespectful system”.

Siasia, the most decorated African coach at the Rio-Olympics, having also won a silver medal in Beijing in 2008, claims to have gone unpaid for five months by the Nigeria Football Federation.

He said he had quit football in Nigeria after “a turbulent and incredible campaign in Brazil.”

The 1996 Olympic football champions became the first African country to complete an Olympic medal sweep having won a silver medal in Beijing in 2008.
