🇳🇬 Super Eagles appoint Jose Peseiro as coach

Super Eagles have appointed Jose Peseiro as the new coach of the Nigeria national team.

Nigeria were without a coach after Augustin Iguafuen stepped down after the team failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

“(Pesero) has extensive and varied experience coaching major clubs and national teams in four different continents, namely Europe, Asia, Africa and South America,” the National Football Association said in a statement.

The Portuguese will be assisted by former Nigerian internationals Fenide George, Ike Choronmo and Salisu Yusuf.

The 56-year-old former international defender was appointed provisionally in December following the sacking of Frenchman Gernot Rohr.

Besero’s profession

The 67-year-old captained the Saudi national team and clubs including Sporting Lisbon, Porto, Panathinaikos, Rapid Bucharest, Al Hilal, Al Wahda, Al Ahly, Cairo and Sharjah.
