Super Eagles get interim coach as Peseiro bows out

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has named Augustine Eguavoen as temporary coach for the Super Eagles after Jose Peseiro’s departure.

Peseiro announced his resignation as Super Eagles coach on Friday, having led the team to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final.

The team fell to Cote d’Ivoire in the competition final. His contract with the team ended in February.

Despite indications that the NFF was talking with the Portuguese to prolong his contract, Peseiro used his X handle to announce his departure.

“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.
