Sports Ministry Okays Peseiro For Super Eagles Top Job


The Sports Ministry has approved the appointment of Jose Peseiro as the new head coach of the Super Eagles, reports Completesports.com.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has reportedly picked Peseiro to replace Gernot Rohr as the substantive head coach of the Super Eagles ahead of three other candidates.

The Sports Ministry led by Sunday Dare, according to several reports, however queried the procedures used by the NFF in selecting the Portuguese.

Frenchman Laurent Blanc, former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde and erstwhile Netherlands defender Philip Cocu are the three other contenders for the post.

Completesports.com scooped that the sports ministry has now approved Peseiro’s appointment after talks with the NFF.

Details of Peseiro’s contract including paperworks are almost done and an announcement is expected be made soon.

The 62-year-old was first announced by the NFF to take over the Super Eagles after the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Peseiro eventually did not take up the job after Augustine Eguavoen’s temporary appointment was extended to cover the ill-fated 2022 World Cup playoffs against the Black Stars of Ghana

The Portuguese last managed the Venezuelan national team. He has previously handled Egyptian club Al Ahly, his only managerial experience in Africa.

It remain to be seen if Peseiro will take charge of the Super Eagles for their friendlies against Mexico and Ecuador.

First assistant coach Salisu Yusuf released a 30-man list for the friendlies on Tuesday. The friendlies will take place in the United States of America late May and early June.

The Super Eagles are also scheduled to take on Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month.

Hope he will be mandated to qualify us for & win the Nations Cup next year. Anything short of that is failure.

I think d sport ministry should stop any plans of getting a new coach, get a new board n work with them on getting the new coach..
the new board may have different perspective about appointing a coach n may not align with this pasiero, we shouldn't force him on the new board, I think, dts how its done

The damage has been done already. It is if no use employing a foreign coach now. There is no competition at hand. A local coach would have been engaged temporarily. A foreign coach could come in when we are 22 months aways from a major competition like nation cup.
NFF would get used to this coach towards a competition and sack him for a local coach they would have engaged now and the vicious circle will continue.

Re: Sports Ministry Okays Peseiro For Super Eagles Top Job by Day169: 8:54pm On May 13
Nigeria has an unmistakable penchant for mediocrity!
Just look at the list of other candidates shortlisted.. Laurent Blanc, Ernesto Valverde and Phillipe Cocu, and all we could settle for was the former National team coach of of Venezuela.
Once again it looks like a blueprint for dismal results for the Eagles.
Perhaps it's time we face some reality and delete the adjective 'super' from their title until they become deserving again. angry

CAF nations cup holds next year. This is the best time to bring in a foreign coach
