Jose Peseiro is expected to take charge of the West African side after the sack of Gernot Rohr in December 2021 after five and half years with the team.
Portuguese tactician, Jose Peseiro, has been named the new head coach of the Nigerian national men’s football team. The Nigeria Football Federation opted to offer him a short-term contract of one year with renewal on the basis of performance.
Furthermore, Peseiro will commence duties on May 29, 2022, when Nigeria square off against Mexico in an international friendly game in the United States. However, his first major assignment is qualifying Nigeria for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in the Ivory Coast.
Importantly, he will be assisted by ex-Nigerian international Finidi George, Salisu Yusuf, and Usman Abdallah.
Austine Eguavoen was appointed on an interim basis after the sack of Gernot Rohr but, he only led the Super Eagles to a second-round finish at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, and failed to qualify the team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Jose Peseiro was a former Venezuelan national team coach and Real Madrid assistant coach.
