NFF appoints Portuguese Jose Peseiro as Super Eagles coach


17 days after the dismissal of former Super Eagles Coach, Genort Rohr,  the Nigeria Football Federation has appointed Portuguese tactician, Jose Peseiro, as Super Eagles Head Coach.

The Nigeria Football Federation made the appointment public through a communique sent today (Wednesday).


“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 in part.

According to the communique, the NFF resolved that the Portuguese will take over the team fully after AFCON

“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,” the communique added.


Until his appointment, Jose Peseiro was the coach of Venezuela .
