Nigerian second-tier side Mighty Jets FC, from the city of Jos, have sacked 40 players from their 65-man squad for performing below the club’s expectations.

Struggling Jets, currently seventh in the 13-team Northern Conference of the Nigeria National League (NNL), have also snapped up a further 10 new players to increase competition and “separate wheat from chaff”.

“We had a big squad of 65 players, too crowded and unproductive, so we had to release 40 players,” the club’s sporting director Benedict Akwuegbu told BBC Sport.

“We only need 35 players for the season and some players were not even registered but training with the club. It was just too much.”

One of the affected players told BBC Sport that he was not given enough opportunity to prove himself.

Chief Mcal; I was going to say the same thing like you did, but I remembered in the article, it was said, "... some players were not even registered but training with the club. It was just too much.” Thus, as you can see, some players are not registered with the Club; however, whether they are paid or not is what we don't know. In reality, why should they pay a player who is not registered with the Club? Anyway, ...

...agree, saw that part. But then it should not have been news for them to be sacked. You only sack a person you hired.

I think only a certain number of players can be registered for the league (35 max in the NPFL)...
In that case, some players may have been employed by the club but not registered for league play.

TBH, I am not surprised that a Nigerian team carries that many players in its books. What is surprising, however, is that this involves Mighty Jets which is not owned by the state. In several state-owned clubs, there can be that many people listed as players. However, they are not all used. Instead, they are there on behest of big benefactors who issue letters requiring that they are hired and on the pay list of the clubs.

Who is responsible? why does the person
responsible never seems to be identified.

Clubs like Mighty jets because of their status carry the extra burden of being used to appease everyone especially if they are being funded by the govt. Everyone brings a relative to be employed even when the last time they kicked a ball was 30yrs ago in primary school.
