In the wake of Jose Peseiro's departure as the coach of the Super Eagles, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has swiftly moved to appoint Augustine Eguavoen, a former head coach of the Super Eagles and a revered figure in Nigerian football, as the Interim Coach.

Peseiro's tenure came to an end after leading the team to the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), where they were defeated by Cote d'Ivoire. Despite reports of negotiations for a contract renewal, Peseiro has officially left his post as the head coach of the Super Eagles as his contract expired in February.

Expressing his sentiments on the departure, Peseiro took to his X account to bid farewell and express gratitude for the opportunity to lead the Super Eagles. He highlighted the pride, honor, and sense of fulfillment he experienced during his 22 months in charge, acknowledging the dedication and enthusiasm of the players and the support of the NFF leadership.


While Peseiro's departure marks the end of an era for the Super Eagles, the NFF has yet to issue an official statement confirming or denying the development.

In the interim, Eguavoen's appointment signals a transitional phase for the Super Eagles, with expectations high for his leadership and guidance as the team prepares for future challenges and competitions on the international stage.

Austin Eguavoen again? You people at the helm of football affairs in Nigeria are mad. Austin Eguavoen should  try his hands on one local club and let's see how good he is than always causing problems for any foreign coach of the Super Eagles to be sacked so that he will be called up to take over. This is the fifth time he is coming up for this. Nonsense.

Lets support him. Though I would have preferred a younger person that played at the highest level like John Obi Mikel.

But why do they always sack the coaches? So if they lose a match, the coach must go, why not the players themselves and replace them with abundant players we have?
