No Money To Pay Peseiro – NFF Board Member

A board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Nse Essien says the federation won’t be able to pay the Super Eagles Head Coach Jose Peseiro his compensatory fees if he were to be relieved of his job.

The Portuguese coach has been under pressure of late after his side played out consecutive draws against Lesotho on Thursday and Zimbabwe in their Group C, World Cup qualifiers a few days later.

Many Nigerian football fans had expectations that the Super Eagles would almost waltz through the group, however, the teams ranked, 151st and 125th took the lead in their encounter before a late rally from the 40th-ranked nation.

Speaking in a post-match interview, Essien detailed that he wasn’t oblivious to the calls for Peseiro’s sack but the NFF were limited by monetary constraints.

“If you check the internet almost everyone is asking for the sack of the head coach. It is unfortunate that out of six points, we have just two and we have found ourselves in a precarious situation.

“When you say NFF should sack the Head coach we didn’t employ him, this regime didn’t employ him when you come to look at it it was the Sports Ministry that employed him,” he said after the draw against Zimbabwe.

In September, the 63-year-old had his stay on the job extended after a renegotiated pay of $50,000 contract from $70,000 was reached

But Essien revealed that Peseiro had not been paid his salary and they have no other choice than to respect his contract.
