‘I don’t have interest in Super Eagles’ job again — Jose Peseiro

Former Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro rejected insinuations that he could return to coach Nigeria again.

Peseiro left the post at the end of February following the expiration of his contract and has now come out to deny reports that he could make an instant return to manage the three-time African champions.

“As I said, my work with the Super Eagles is over. It was gratifying to coach players of such quality, with my staff we managed to do well in this sense, but the time has come to move on to another project,” Peseiro said in an interview with Sports Italia.

The former Saudi Arabia and Venezuela coach guided the team to second position at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. The 63-year-old was in charge of the Super Eagles for 22 months.

Several top coaches including Emmanuel Amuneke, Sunday Oliseh, Finidi George, Daniel Amokachi and Antonio Conceicao among others have applied for the job.
