Samson Siasia robbed in Atalanta


Nigeria Olympic team coach Samson Siasia has been robbed in Atlanta, Georgia, where his team have been training ahead of next month’s Olympic Games.

“It is true that my car was burgled but I have taken the necessary steps on the item stolen in the car,” Siasia confirmed.

“We are focused and preparing hard for the Olympics that is what I can tell you for now.”

The car Siasia has been using to run around for the team was broken into at the team’s hotel’s car park and his credit cards, two phones, the phone of his personal assistant Abu and some money were taken away.

Siasia’s team are due to play a final warm-up game against Honduras Olympic team on Tuesday before they depart for Brazil on Friday.
