Champions League returns - Samson Siasia Recounts Feat & UCL group stage draw ['Sports' on The Morning Call]

The Morning Call

This week, we hear from the man who coached Nigeria to it’s third Olympic  men’s football medal at the Rio Olympics, Samson Siasia.

Nigeria’s  Under-23 team won gold at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games and silver at Beijing 2008.

We go to Kenya where the country’s Sports Minister has attempted to dissolve the whole organising team that worked on the contingent that went to Rio.

Champions League action returns, with new Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola facing a daunting challenge in search for European glory. He meets his former club Barcelona in the Champions League group stage.

Guardiola, who replaced Manuel Pellegrini at the end of last season, is Barcelona’s most successful boss, leading the Spanish club to 14 major trophies between 2008 and 2012.
