Nigerian Govt to decide Super Eagles head coach, Peseiro’s fate – NFF

Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Sheriff Inuwa Ahlan has revealed that only the Federal Government can decide the fate of Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro.

According to reports, Peseiro’s contract will end at the end of the month.

Despite the Super Eagles’ impressive performance at the recently concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cote d’Ivoire, calls have been made for his contract not to be renewed.

Speaking on Peseiro’s contract situation, Inuwa said the NFF board will meet next week to review the country’s outing at the AFCON and make recommendations to the supervising Sports Ministry headed by John Enoh.

“Peseiro is a national project, not only NFF project. Our duty is to recommend and forward to the Sports Ministry and whatever decision taken, our duty is to implement,” Inuwa told Prompt News.

“So far the Federation has good working relationship with the minister and the minister is in charge of sports in the country. His decision and advise must be respected. He is our father, we must consult him in any of our policies for proper guidance.”
