Nigeria Under-23 coach Samson Siasia said he has no idea of the overage players that will form part of his team to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

This is on the background of speculations that Odion Ighalo, Ahmed Musa and John Obi Mikel will be in the squad. Siasia who is currently on holidays after the long hard qualification campaign, stated there was no such move to have the players in his team.

He stressed that on his return to the country after the Christmas break, his plan for the Olympics will become much clearer.

“Right now I am away from the country, resting with my family and have not discussed my list with anybody. Yes those players are good and we’ll need the best three overage we can invite but I have not called Musa, Odion Ighalo or Mikel.

“When I return to the country then we’ll start out planning for the Olympic Games, but for now there’s nothing on ground.’
