A member of the Board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Hon. Nse Essien has said the football body is not responsible for the employment of Jose Peseiro but the Sports Ministry.
Essien, who responded to calls for the sack of the Super Eagles coach, noted that the NFF is owing Peseiro following the shocking 1-1 draw with Zimbabwe in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
Nigerians have lost their cool on the Portuguese gaffer following a string of poor results coming this far.
Recall, that the Super Eagles have taken 2 points from their opening two games in the 6-team Group C, with only the top side in each pool assured of one of Africa’s 9 automatic qualification places.
South Africa could open up an early 4-point lead when they visit Rwanda on Tuesday.
