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.
