Done Deal: NFF appoints new Super Eagles coach ahead AFCON

Few days to the beginning of AFCON 2023, The Super Eagles of Nigeria will be coached by an entire new manager as they will be looking for a good competition.

Less than one month after the sack of former Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, announced the endorsement and immediate appointment of Portuguese football manager, Jose Peseiro. Peseiro is to take over as the new head coach of the Super Eagles.It must be stated here that the appointment of Jose Peseiro doesn’t invalidate the mandate given to Augustine Eguavoen. The report adjust that the interim head coach, Augustine Eguavoen, will remain in charge of the Super Eagles team during the period of the African Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.

The newly appointed coach, Jose Peseiro, will serve as an observer and perhaps assist in getting the team to win their matches.

The report further stated that after the African Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon, Augustine Eguaveon will function as the technical manager of the team, while Jose Peseiro will retain the position of the head coach. So, it is assumed that both Augustine Eguavoen and Jose Peseiro will use the AFCON to establish quality working relationship for the benefit of the Super Eagles team.

Let us also reiterate here that the 61-year-old Portuguese football manager, Jose Peseiro, has been in charge of ‘the Venezuela national team until August and has also coached Sporting Lisbon, FC Porto, and Al Ahly of Egypt’ (Channels News).

What do you expect from the new Super Eagles Coach?

I have always tried to know why NFF are keen to get a foreign coach to replace another foreign coach. Why can’t they leave Augustine Eguavoen to lead Super Eagles even after the AFCON?
