Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, has warned the squad against entertaining female visitors in their camp as they prepare for a must-win fixture quarterfinal against Angola at the African Cup Nations tournament in Ivory Coast.
To ensure the players are not distracted from achieving their goal, Peseiro imposed some strict measures including punctuality for team meetings, a ban on answering phone calls during meetings, adherence to a team curfew with a bedtime of 11 pm, and a prohibition on entertaining female visitors.
To enforce these measures, the players are isolated on the fourth floor of the Pullman Hotel in Abidjan, with the team’s chief security officer maintaining comprehensive surveillance.
“Peseiro has gone tough on the players. He warned that he will not hestitate to expel any player who flouts camp rules as they stay on course to win the AFCON,” a source told ScoreNigeria
“The man is just a game away from reaching the target the NFF set for him to get a new contract and as such he is not smiling or joking.”
Nigeria will battle Angola on Friday, February 2, for a place in the 34th edition of the AFCON semifinal.
