BREAKING: Jose Peseiro appointed as Super Eagles head coach
By Alao Abiodun
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced Jose Peseiro as the new head coach of the Super Eagles.
Peseiro is a Portuguese national, born on 4 April 1960. His last coaching stint was Venezuela.
This was made known in a communique obtained by The Nation on Wednesday evening.
Peseiro replaced Gernot Rohr, who was sacked on December 12.
It said: “After careful consideration of a memo presented by Chairman of the Technical and Development Sub-Committee, the Executive Committee endorsed a proposal for the appointment of Mr Jose Peseiro as the new Head Coach of the Super Eagles, following the end to the relationship with Mr Gernot Rohr,” the NFF communique read.
“However, the Committee resolved that Mr Augustine Eguavoen, named the interim Head Coach, will lead the Super Eagles to the AFCON 2021 in Cameroon with Mr Peseiro only playing the role of Observer.
“It was unanimously agreed that the AFCON is a good avenue for Mr Peseiro to launch a working relationship with Mr Eguavoen, who will revert to his role as Technical Director (hence Mr Peseiro’s immediate boss) after the AFCON.”
