Samson Siasia has set the record straight concerning his recent wedding anniversary.
The Nigeria U-23s coach was supposed to be celebrating his 30th anniversary to wife Cassandra last week and this raised a few eyebrows since he is only 47 years old.
But the for Super Eagles star has used the Nigeria Football Federation to correct what he claims is the wrong impression, although the anniversary cake he is pictured cutting clearly reads ’30th anniversary’.
According to Siasia, he actually celebrated his 27th marriage anniversary and not 30th as has been reported in the media, as he got married at the age of 20 in 1988.
Noting that the marriage anniversary party was not organized by him or his family but by his friends and back-room staff of the U-23 National Team, Siasia said he had notified the organisers that day of the error when he saw the cake.
While thanking Nigerians for all their support during his playing days and now as a coach, Siasia said he will never do anything to tarnish the image of the country in any way.
