Don’t Stop Supporting Super Eagles, Peseiro Tells Nigerians

Peseiro appreciated Nigerians for their support during the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament



Peseiro Addresses Rumours Of Return As Super Eagles Coach

Former Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro, charged Nigerians on Wednesday to continue to support the Super Eagles team.

This, according to him, is because the Super Eagles usually sacrifice a lot to ensure that they make Nigerians happy anytime they are representing the national team.

Peseiro, who said this in a post shared on his official X account on Wednesday, appreciated Nigerians for their support during the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

He also added that support and commitment to the team should not decline as time goes on.

The post reads, “I want to thank all Nigerians and the entire press for the interest, support, and encouragement given to the Super Eagles while I was their coach.

“I would like to ask all of you to always support your players. These athletes give their all for the Super Eagles, taking pride in representing their country. The players make sacrifices to bring you joy. The Super Eagles deserve all your support, which will be very important for the great challenges that lie ahead.”

News About Nigeria reports that the Portuguese manager tendered his resignation last week following the conclusion of his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Although the NFF had tried to negotiate with Peseiro to renew his contract, he insisted on leaving the team.

Peseiro was appointed as the Super Eagles coach in May 2022 after the team failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.

He took over as Super Eagles coach from Augustine “Cerezo” Eguavoen.
