FG not aware of Siasia’s Dream Team trip to USA

13 July 2016, 16:02Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Sports Minister Solomon Dalung has denied knowledge of Nigeria’s U23 side, the Dream Team’s trip to the United States.

The Dream Team is currently training in Atlanta USA ahead of the 2016 Rio Olympics.

In a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister said his ministry had no knowledge of the team’s trip and should not be held responsible for any hardship confronting the players and officials of the side.

“You said our U23 team is suffering in the US, am just hearing that from you.

“You didn’t tell us what they went there for and who took them there.

“When they were travelling to the US, were we told?”

“That they are a national team and in the US having problem is not our business.

“It’s like when somebody goes to the market and has a problem, then, he will hold the ministry responsible.

“How does it become our problem if the team travelled without our knowledge or did they say they informed the ministry?

Samson Siasia had complained that the team was abandoned in the US.

News24 reported that Siasia admitted the Dream Team still has so much work to do ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympics.
