    mr Bad Luck Peseiro still have the gout to follow the team come back to Nigeria, He and Uzoho are the bad luck of the team and they must stay away, NFF must fire this man asap and get a world class coach and also Uzoho need to stay out of the team to go and rediscover his form and confidence even if it is going to warrant him to go spiritual r

      A world class coach you say? For where? Worst case scenario they will return the team to our hallowed 94 member. Lmao! They must also pay him off where is the money? This NFF? He will take the team to the AFCON unless they can find the money to pay him off. His contract ends after the AFCON. Whatever happens in Ivory Coast SEGOBE. We can start afresh afterwards. After all he qualified the team for the tournament. I don’t think he’s good enough for the job, but the football house can’t afford to pay him off. They’re even still owing him months of salaries as we speak.

        If nff can pay me 10% of peceiro salary.. i will qualify eagles for world cup with a game to spare ..

        I will invite players in competitive league only
        And if u are in Africa u must be a reliable player in the middle of defense.
        All plays must be in camp for 10 days max or 5 days for attackers.and a friendly with a grade a team .

  • This man gather liver still follow the team come back. Why is NFF still mute? Any let the contract run out this January make I hear say Gusau renew am!!

      As at this mornibg an NFF member was quoted saying they are owing Peseiro since may 2022 and he has only received 3 months out of what they are owing him. Meaning these glass house fools owed him into contract renewAl negotiation knowing he is a bad coach lol. Which Coach with a good reputation will want to work with an employer that has owed several past coaches and still continues to owe it’s current….The problems in our football is deeper than just the players on the field.

    Don’t mind those people claiming they need money to sack the coach. A whole football association pleading for money to sack a coach they employed and just renewed his contract. Am beginning to suspect that these people put us in this messy situation so that they can milk from us. To heck with you people why would you renew the contract of a coach we all know is not the best and still you inserted a clause that will dry the purse of the football federation. Have never seen a useless and dumb ass president of Nff as the current president. So unintelligent.

    Uzoho is the worst goalkeeper that Nigerian people have ever seen. Even his Club in a second-rate Country, cannot allow him to keep goal for them. Uzoho bribed Peceiro to let him keep for Nigeria to enhance his ratings with his Club. Nigerians, Governors and other stakeholders in their unison, appealed to the coach to drop Uzoho, this stupid coach would not let go of him. l called on Nigerians everywhere to demand an explanation from the coach, why he did not use Obasogie in the game against Zimbabwe.? l am putting it to him that this coach was bribed by Uzoho. He should explain or refute my allegation to the Nigeria people in a press conference that l am wrong. Failure to take my allegation may result in class lawsuit against this coach.

    Nigeria does not have to go to the World Cup. Let us stay at home and build our country. Right now, it is too corrupt to play international football.

    Guys honestly speaking Mr Peseiro needs some time with the super eagles. He has not spent much time with the team as he should. Please let’s cut him some slack and also be patient with the super eagles team. They need time to gel

    • onwajunior 2 weeks ago

      No…he is just not good. He played the Afcon qualifiers and numerous friendlies, but still couldn’t figure out that his midfield is trash. A good coach would have spent time scouting midfielder – we have Yusuf in Antwerp, Ogbelu here in Africa, Nnadi…I don’t know others, but a good coach won’t waste time scouting forwards because that’s our strength. Even his formation makes us struggle.
