In May 2022, the former Sporting CP manager succeeded Augustine Eguavoen, although in his first eight games in charge, he only managed three victories
Five coaches are reportedly being considered by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to take Jose Peseiro’s position as head coach of the Super Eagles after a period of twelve months, soccernet.ng reports.
The Super Eagles lost their World Cup tickets for 2022 to Ghana and exited early from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, and the Portuguese manager took over for the former Nigerian star Augustine Eguavoen as the headcoach.
The Nigerian national team has not been playing at its best under the former Sporting CP boss since May, losing six games and winning three of eight.
According to a recent OGN report, the 63-year-old could be overseeing the Super Eagles’ last matches in June if his contract with the Nigerian football federation is not renewed.
The source further stated that two Nigerian coaches, particularly Salisu Yusuf, the head coach of the Nigeria Under-23 team, and three international coaches have been suggested to replace the gaffer.
The former Venezuelan head coach will manage the 2013 AFCON winners through the last AFCON qualification games, which OGN claimed may be his final matches.
Rumours suggested that the native of Portugal could be having a contractual dispute with the Nigerian football organisation, but neither party has responded to the rumours.
