Three coaches of different local football clubs in Nigeria have lost their jobs as a result of their teams unsatisfactory performances .
According to reliable sources ,the coaches namely, Erasmus Onuh of Bukola Babes, Ilorin, Kennedy Okogba of Ocean Boys, Brass , Ladan Bosso of Niger Tornadoes, Minna were sacked by their different employees who have described them as incompetent.
Mixed reactions have trailed the exit of these coaches.While some people support the idea by claiming that the poor results recorded by the teams led by these coaches overtime justified their sack, others believe that coaches should not always be blamed for their teams’ poor performances because in some cases , the players are not the best and coaches have to work with what they have.
“I don’t know why we are always in a hurry to sack coaches in Nigeria .In most civilized football leagues, even when a team finish at the bottom of the table at the end of a season, the coach is still given the opportunity to make necessary corrections towards another season.
This is because if a new coach is brought in, he is not likely to know the team’s weaknesses and might end up making the same mistakes”,said Raymond, a sport analyst.
With three coaches sacked with four weeks into the Nigerian professional league, it appears that the league would make it into the history book of sacking more coaches compared to other leagues.Before now, however, Godfrey Esu has the unenviable record of being the most sacked coach in the Nigerian League.
