The Nigeria Football Federation has said that the future of Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro will be determined by the team’s performance at the African Nations Cup to be hosted by Cote d’Ivoire in January, 2024.
The General Secretary of the federation, Sanusi Mohammed made this known in a chat with Promptnewsonline. He said, “His performance would also be assessed after the Nations cup before opening a fresh discussion with him. Our focus now is to prepare the team for super outing in Ivory Coast.”
He added ” if the federation is to renew his contract , it must be a collective decision taking by the Executive Board.
He also stated that Peseiro was not given any condition rather than taking the Super Eagles to the semi-final of the CAF Africa Cup of Nations.
He however frowned at the news making the round that the NFF has extended Peseiro’s contract.
“It is unfortunate that some people are busy writing falsehood. Honestly the leadership of the football house has not held any meeting wit Peseiro over his contract or extension. For now the eagles coach has a valid contract till Nations Cup. Sanusi explained.
Super Eagles have qualified for the 2024 African Nations Cup topping Group A with 12 points in five matches. Fourteen other countries including the hosts, Ivory Coast have also qualified for the 24-team tournament.
Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen is the highest goal scorer in the 2023 AFCON qualifier with 7 goals.
