Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has lifted the October 10, 2019 deadline date given to former Super Eagles Chief Coach Samson Siasia to appeal the life ban placed on him by FIFA for bribery allegation.
Siasia told brila.net’s Mo Saliu in Abuja on Thursday that he got a reprieve from CAS for today’s deadline after his lawyers worked hard on the case to get it.
“The date I was told by my lawyers has been lifted by CAS after they made representations. My Lawyers will come back with a new date. The former Coach told brila.net.
But I must as a matter of urgency raise the funds for the appeal”, Siasia disclosed.
Under consideration is his application for Stay or suspension of FIFA’s Decision pending the Appeal Hearing itself.
