Siasia: Le Roy should be worried and afraid of us

30 July 2015, 10:10

Abuja - Nigeria men's U23 coach, Samson Siasia has warned his Congolese counterpart, Claude Le Roy to be afraid and worried ahead of both country's African U23 qualifier this weekend.

Both men have been involved in a war of words since before the first leg in Port Harcourt two weeks ago, with Siasia saying he wasn't scared of the experienced Congo coach, and the Frenchman accusing Siasia of disrespect in his response.

And ahead of the return leg in Pointe Noire this weekend, Siasia has reignited the media war, by saying Le Roy cannot intimidate him and warned the Frenchman to be worried.

"They can't intimidate us with all the overseas based players they have, in fact I think he should be worried.

"They had two chances at goal here (in the first leg) and they managed to score one and he (Le Roy) said they were the better team. I think he should be worried and he should be afraid we are coming to Congo.

"They came over here and beat the Super Eagles so we can go over there and beat them. We know our game plan and I hear they have six overseas based players but that is not going to scare us.

"We just have to be focused on our game plan and do what we have to do and we will get what we want," Siasia posited.
