The NFF Technical Committee has however ordered Siasia to shed the huge hangers_on around him as the football authority is already feeling the economic impact of the extra financial burden.

A dependable NFF management staff said the unexpected financial burden is not going down well with the executive committee of the Aminu Maigari_led NFF.

As against the nine backroom staff approved, it was learnt the number currently in Siasia’s ‘camp’ has blown to over 14; thus swelling the NFF daily hotel bills.

The source hinted yesterday that the NFF Technical Committee is bent on deducting whatever hotel bills incurred that was more than the nine backroom staff approved for the Eagles’ head coach.
