Siasia has been out of a job since he guided Nigeria’s U-23 side to bronze medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in Brazil.

His agent, Nico Mbonai, confirmed to Nigeria’s Leadership newspaper that the Super Eagles legend has applied for the top jobs in South Africa.

According to Mbonani, Siasia’s CV has been sent to Safa and Pirates.

Siasia led Nigeria to silver medal in Beijing in 2008 and was the winning coach of the African Under-23 Nations Cup in 2015.
