Super Eagles New Coach Peseiro Gets One-Year Short-Term Contract With Performance-Related Clauses

Super Eagles New Coach Peseiro Gets One-Year Short-Term Contract With Performance-Related Clauses

Newly-appointed coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has been handed a one-year short term contract, as he begins his reign as the head coach of Nigeria’s Senior Men’s National team.

Contrary to speculations, the Portuguese coach was only handed a 12 months deal, which is subject to renewal based on performance-related clauses.


With the NFF facing a legal battle on payments for erstwhile coach of the team, Gernot Rohr, all pointers are the Federation are weary of allowing thunder strike in the same spot.

Peseiro will lead the Eagles in the United States when the team faces Mexico and Ecuador in international friendly games. He will be assisted by Ex-Eagles winger Finidi George, Salisu Yusuf and Usman Abdallah.

The former Venezuela and Saudi Arabia national team coach comes in as the substantive replacement for Franco-German coach, Gernot Rohr, whose contract was terminated by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, after five and half years of handling the three-time African champions.

The NFF Technical Director, Austine Eguavoen, last handled the Super Eagles as Interim Technical Adviser. He led the team to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroun where the team failed to go beyond the Second Round. With Emmanuel Amuneke as his assistant, he led the Eagles through the 2022 World Cup African qualifiers playoffs, and failed to go past the Black Stars of Ghana.

  • Peseiro should please invite good legs for the two friendlies. He may include three players from NPL.

    Mexico believe that Nigeria has strong team. We shouldn’t go there with weak team please.

    Though, both matches are friendly but Super Eagles need to win matches to win back the confidence and trust of football loving Nigerian.

    You are welcome Peseiro.

          Abused wives? We never abuse your wives, we sleep with them. The wife of my Ghanaian neighbour wanted sleep with me in Koforidua. I said no. The same thing happened to me in Tamale. Ghanaian women can’t get enough of me. Don’t let your wife meet me o.

          • Selfmade KING 2 months ago

            Why will my wife meet a dirty BOKOM CRIME like u lol

            Ugly BOKOM chimp haha 

            My wife meets human beings and not dirty BOKOM PUNK like u and ur dirty mother haha 

            U dumb as a pair of socks 

            Continue to BLEEP THE EDO  escorts haha

          • Willie Whitelaw 2 months ago

            Self made sewage, if your wife meets me,you can kiss your marriage goodbye. Do you know how many divorce cases are currently in the Accra Magistrate court because of my extra marital affairs? 25. Don’t add your own to that statistics o. Just yesterday I went to bed with Miss Accra Hearts of Oaks. Guess what, she is married.

        • This selfmade ‘BOKOM’ COMEDIAN is still here, blabbing and dancing naked on stage to an uninterested and bored crowd? Your ITK yawning brother has been knocked out with blue-black eye with a badly bloodied mouth yesterday (I read everything. Lol). You’re still here ranting and whining like a 10-year-old they seized his candy.


          and rest. Nigeria and Ghana, we no be mate. Everybody knows it at the world stage, but there’s free speech. So you can keep fooling yourself. Economically, Nigeria is 10 times richer than Ghana. We are 10 times bigger than you in population, 7 times bigger in size. You only have Accra and Kumasi as manageable cities (Everywhere else is a village). We have Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Uyo, Calabar, Ibadan, Jos, Kano, Enugu, Owerri, Kaduna etc. What else, militarily, you’ll surrender in 2 days. Football, CAF dash you away goals level.

    The clowns who engulfed us in this forum that we are the only country with lights out will like to see this link below. Just saying this so readers will not let their lies into them. Here’s a breaking news about Dumsor in Ghana called light out.

      You are being compulsive. End your obsession with Ghana.

      • Chima E Samuels 2 months ago

        Yes that’s because you don’t know how this guys are treating Nigerians in Ghana, and they carry that guts unto our website here thinking Nigerians are same with the ones in Ghana. You have no idea how they don’t respect us just because some few ones fell into their hands and then they generalize it as all Nigerians are cheats. Honestly speaking if you know me on this page I don’t really stress on naivety but on this I stress on it because of the falsehood these guys are made to believe by their gullible Ghanaian fore fathers to be negative towards Nigerians. It ends here I won’t be dwelling on this anymore!!!

        • Make this coach also play Ghana before you shower him praises. Black Stars be the reason why there was a vacancy

        • Selfmade KING 2 months ago

          Only a BOKOM BABOON can do this animalistic move 


          Hahahaa haha

          See BOKOM animals are suffering in ONE FAILED NIAIJA hahaha

          • Willie Whitelaw 2 months ago

            Self made gutter, I sleep with wives of Ghanaian ministers and celebrities. Do you know that famous actor called Koffi Nene Gyan. I had his wife yesterday. Don’t let your wife meet me o or else you will commit suicide.

  • Goddy 2 months ago

    Why is it that we will always fall a prey to Ghana black Stars. I always feel bad when it comes to us meeting them. If you look at it critically, I believe this Ghanaians always go the extra mile in making sure the win us.
     I think we shouldn’t blame Eguavoen all that much for  SE failure.
    They use our African Vodo  ( Otumokpo) to champion their cause especially when  meeting us.
    So let’s think and think again if not the goal Partey scored wasn’t anything to write home about but it went in.

  • Prince charming 2 months ago

    Welcome my coach, we love you please sir will need good tactics and a winning team

    • Willie Whitelaw 2 months ago

      Eguavoen won all the group stage matches in the Africa Cup of Nations. He was even named the best coach in the group stages. Rohr never achieved this sort of greatness. Eguavoen never lost to Ghana in 2 legs. This is an incredible achievement. It is beyond me that he is not allowed to continue as Super Eagles coach.
      Eguavoen will return to coach Nigeria after the 1 year tenure of Paseiro has expired.

      • Iboman obi 2 months ago

        The position of the Technical Director is higher than that of a coach. The coach actually reports to the TD. Eguavoen was mostly on the coaching job as a stop gap. He needs a position higher than a coach. We have started work on how to have him as the nff president or he goes to the sports ministry. For now, let’s give the new coach and his assistant, Finidi George all our supports. It is well here.

  • Willie Whitelaw 2 months ago

    Eguavoen is far better than Paseiro. NFF should recall Eguavoen at once.

  • Ghana be the reason why there was a vacancy. You for not shower praises on him now. Make he play Black Stars first. I no dey say Ghana be the bar or standards, but dem dey worry. They bring matter too much

  • Iboman obi 2 months ago

    Only patience we need to gain more with a domestic coach who certainly will bring others along. How much emphasis laid on it, and with a Peseiro we lose while others, setubal gain. Welcome there coach peseiro and make sure you report to your oga soon.

    • Luke Omanaenle 2 months ago

      I know you meant the NFF. Constitutionally, Jose Peseiro hasn’t other alternatives. God bless Nigeria.


  • Ebhohi 2 months ago

    For anything, I’m impressed with the clauses in the agreement papers. At least it gives the NFF a leverage of control besides having the coach reside in the country. Surely there is no better time than now to have a foreign coach eminently qualified like Peseiro to bring new tidings to SE squad. He is most welcome to this part of the World but what some of us elders saw while sitting under the tree is what the little bitter kids here can never see from the top of the iroko tree. It is well with our domestic coaches and the league.

  • Modayi Abby 2 months ago

    A masterstroke by the Amaju led NFF is clear sign the fans are happy over the development.

  • Ranti 2 months ago

    They want him as nff president.

  • Felix A Adams 2 months ago

    I think is a wise decision, thus was almost late for him to adequately prepare well.Better still group of good players are already on ground for him to utilise. Goodluck
