Jose Peseiro Quits Super Eagles Job After Contract Expired


News Investigators/ Super Eagles Coach, Jose Peseiro has resigned his appointment as the coach of National Coach of Super Eagles after taking the team to the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The team came second having lost to Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the competition.

Mr. Peseiro’s contract with the team expired in February, 2024.

Although there were reports that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) was negotiating with the Portuguese to renew his contract, it was however not clear why a new deal with Peseiro failed.

“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,” he wrote on his X account Friday afternoon.

“We would like to express our gratitude to Sir Amaju Pinnick (the president who signed us), President Ibrahim Gusau, General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi, Secretary Dayo Enebi, the NFF, all the Staff, and especially all the PLAYERS, with whom leading has been a great pleasure.

“Guys, we are thankful; it has been a privilege to be part of this family. We will miss you, but we will always be there for you, no matter where you are. A big hug to all of you,” Mr. Peseiro wrote.
