The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), says it would have sacked head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, if they had money.
A member of the Board – Nse Essien made this claim in a statement following their 1-1 draw with Zimbabwe in a 2026 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.
He said, “The Sports Ministry who employed him were supposed to pay for their salaries. But up till now, nothing has been paid.
“If we sack the coaches now, who will pay compensation?
“Not a dime has been paid yet to this coach who earns about $70,000 a month. We have to respect Jose Peseiro’s contract.
