Jose Peseiro has been appointed as Super Eagles new coach by the Nigeria Football Federation.

 

The federation said the decision was taken at its meeting on Wednesday, December 29. The Portuguese tactician replaces Gernot Rohr, the Franco-German, who was sacked on December 12.

 

Peseiro will however be an observer at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), while Augustine Eguavoen who was appointed as interim coach, will lead the national team to the competition in Cameroon.

 

The statement read;

 

“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.”
