The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced Jose Peseiro a new permanent coach for Super Eagles, who will take over from interim coach Augustine Eguavoen.

The announcement was made in a communique issued after the virtual Executive Committee meeting of the body.

“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 tournament”.
