Nse Essien, a member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Executive Council, has explained why it would be difficult to sack Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro.Nigeria recorded another disappointing draw in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers after they had to come from behind to force a 1-1 draw with Zimbabwe. Walter Musona opened the scoring with a long-range free-kick in the first half before Kelechi Iheanacho equalised for the Eagles.The result increased the calls for the sack of Peseiro but Essien says sacking the Portuguese will not be easy because he is still under contract.If you check the internet almost everyone is asking for the sack of the head coach, Essien said on X.Its unfortunate that out of six points we have just two and we find ourselves in very precarious situation.When people say NFF should sack the head coach, we didnt employ him, if you look at it the Sports Ministry employed him and we were supposed to have paid their salaries but up till now, theyve not paid a dime. If you sack the coach now who pays for compensation? So thats where we find ourselves. Not a dime has been paid to this coach who is earning about $70,000 every month.We have to respect his contract but if we have the money to give to him we are going to relieve him definitely, we are not happy.The Eagles will resume the World Cup qualifiers in June 2024 with a home game against South Africa on matchday three.
