“IDon’t Know When Peseiro Contract Will Expire” – Sanus


The General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Sanusi Mohammed can not say when the contract of Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro will expire.

When asked on when the contract of the Portuguese will expire and the number of year/s he signed with the federation. The scribe simply said that he could not recall whether the contract is for one or two years.

“I don’t know when the contract will expire and I can’t tell you how many year/s contract he signed with the NFF because I am not with the details here.

“As far as I know, Peseiro’s contract has not expired and has not been extended. Is it not when a contract expires that we will talk about the renewal?

The former Venezuela coach was appointed in May 2022 when he took over from Augustine Eguavoen. Since then, he has managed 8 matches with the Super Eagles, winning three and losing 5.

Peseiro will lead Super Eagles in their match-day 5 of 2023 African Nations Cup qualifier against Sierra Leone in Morocco, where the Leone Stars now play their home games. A win to Nigeria will confirm the three times African champions booking a ticket to the 2023 AFCON to be staged by Cote d’Ivoire in January 2024.

The 2013 African champions top Group A with nine points, Guinea Bissau are second on seven points, while Sierra Leone are back in contention for qualification with five points after a 2-0 win over bottom team Sao Tome and Principe.
