AFCON 2023: Peseiro out of contract after Super Eagles’ defeat to Ivory Coast

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, is out of contract following the completion of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Peseiro signed a new contract with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, last year.

The deal was for a short term.

The 63-year-old penned a six-month contract that expired at the end of the AFCON.

A key clause in the contract was for Peseiro to reach the AFCON semi-finals.

The Portuguese surpassed that by leading the Eagles to the final, where they lost 2-1 to hosts Ivory Coast.

It remains to be seen what decision the NFF will take on Peseiro’s future now that the tournament has ended.
