Super Eagles Job: Jose Peseiro Resigns As Super Eagles Coach

Jose Peseiro has resigned from his position as the head coach of the Nigerian football national team, Super Eagles. The Portuguese coach confirmed his departure in a statement on his X handle on Friday, March 1, 2024.

Peseiro, who guided the Super Eagles to a second-place finish at the recently concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cote d’Ivoire, wrote: “Yesterday, we concluded our contract with the NFF. It was a pride and honor to coach the Super Eagles.

“It has been 22 months of immense dedication, sacrifice, emotion, and enormous enthusiasm. We feel a sense of fulfillment. We would like to express our gratitude to Sir Amaju Pinnick (the president who signed us), President Ibrahim Gusau, General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi, Secretary Dayo Enebi, the NFF, all the Staff, and especially all the Players, with whom leading has been a great pleasure.

“Guys, we are thankful; it has been a privilege to be part of this family. We will miss you, but we will always be there for you, no matter where you are. A big hug to all of you.” Reports recently emerged that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) were in talks with Peseiro over a new contract.

It was claimed that Ibrahim Gusau-led NFF management were willing to pay Peseiro the same €50,000 monthly pay he was earning before he led the team to second place finish at the just concluded 2023 AFCON tournament in Cote d’Ivoire.
