The Executive Committee of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has said it met on Wednesday, 29th December 2021 through virtual means to deliberate on important issues in Nigeria Football.
According to the executive committee, Part of their resolve was the appointment of former Porto manager, Jose Peseiro as a new head coach of Nigeria’s national football team – the Super Eagles.
“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,” the NFF stated in a the statement after Wednesday’s meeting.
