Jose Peseiro the new Nigeria coach will go to the Africa Cup of Nations as an observer

Jose Peseiro, coach of Nigeria’s men’s national team, the Super Eagles on Friday resigned from his role after talks of a contract extension were in the offing.

The Portuguese led the Super Eagles to the final of the African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast where they lost 2-1 to the host.

“Yesterday, we concluded our contract with the NFF. It was a pride and honour to coach the Super Eagles. It has been 22 months of immense dedication, sacrifice, emotion and enormous enthusiasm. We feel a sense of fulfilment,” Peseiro wrote on his social media account.

“We would like to express our gratitude to Sir Amaju Pinnick (the president who signed us), President Ibrahim Gusau, General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi, Secretary Dayo Enebi, the NFF, all the staff, and especially all the players with whom leading has been a great pleasure.

“Guys, we are thankful. It has been a privilege to be part of this family. We will miss you, but we will always be there for you, no matter where you are. A big hug to all of you.”
