A top official of the Nigeria Football Federation has stated that the only reason Super Eagles Coach has not been sacked was because the federation don’t have money to pay him off.
“The reason Peseiro is still keeping his job is because the NFF is cash strapped at the moment.” The source told Complete Sports.
He continued, “The Federation is not happy with the performance of the Super Eagles under him.
“He would lead the Super Eagles to the AFCON in January next year but the only way he can keep the job is by winning the title.
”Even if the Super Eagles make it to the semi-final or the final, he will still have to go.
“The general consensus among the NFF executive members is to appoint a local coach in the event Peseiro fail to meet the set target.
“The number one choice at the moment is Emmanuel Amunike because of his antecedents with the Golden Eaglets and Tanzania national team.”
Peseiro was appointed Super Eagles head coach on May 15, 2022
