NFF Issues Ultimatum to Super Eagles Coach Peseiro: Pay Cut or Departure!

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has presented Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro, with a significant decision to make. The Portuguese manager has been given a three-day ultimatum to either accept a pay cut and extend his contract or step down from his position. This move by the NFF raises questions about the team’s leadership and future plans.

According to reports from the NFF’s technical committee, Peseiro has a limited timeframe to make his choice clear. Should he decline the proposal within the three-day window, the NFF intends to appoint a caretaker coach for the Super Eagles’ upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sao Tome and Principe. Subsequently, the federation will initiate the search for a new permanent head coach, indicating a clear stance on the matter.

Peseiro’s previous contract had expired, leaving negotiations for a renewed contract in progress. The coach had expressed his ambitions to guide the Super Eagles to the 2023 AFCON finals in Cote d’Ivoire, a pursuit that seems to have hit a hurdle due to the ongoing dispute over his salary. It’s reported that Peseiro is not amenable to a reduction in his current $70,000 salary, which forms a crucial point of contention in the discussions.
