NFF makes move to appoint new Super Eagles coach to replace Peseiro in April


After parting ways with meticulous Portuguese strategist Jose Peseiro, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is moving to appoint a new coach for the Super Eagles in the month of April.

Nigeria has been without a head coach since Peseiro’s 22-month reign as the senior national team’s coach officially ended in February 2024. The NFF was forced to post a job opening for the head coach of the Super Eagles as a result.

Many foreign and local coaches are said to have applied for the job, including Emmanuel Amuneke, Sunday Oliseh, Finidi George, Daniel Amokachi, and Antonio Conceicao.

But according to a source, the NFF will do everything it takes to make sure they receive it, including employing a coach who can elevate the Super Eagles to the next level.

“NFF wants the best for Nigerian football and will go all out to ensure that they get it by hiring only the person who will take the Super Eagles to the highest level. The World Cup qualifiers will be coming in another three months, and we cannot afford to make a mistake in our choice of coach at this point,” an impeccable source told on condition of anonymity.

“We want to improve on the recent good run of form by the Super Eagles, and whoever gets the job must be ready to hit the ground running. So whoever gets the job must be someone who knows the enormity of the job and must have the managerial expertise and experience to handle our star-studded team.”
