The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced former FC Porto coach, Jose Peseiro as the new head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria
Peseiro, born 4 April 1960, is a Portuguese national. His last coaching job was with Venezuela.
His appointment was contained in a communique obtained by our Correspondent in Abuja, Wednesday evening.
Peseiro will replace German tactician, Gernot Rohr, who was sacked on December 12.
The communique reads: “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.
“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.”
