The announcement by the Nigeria Football Federation to extend the interim regime of Austin Eguavoen has technically aborted the engagement of Portugal’s Jose Peseiro who was late in December announced as the new Super Eagles manager.
At the time, he was to assume duties after the Africa Cup of Nations to which he was invited as an observer.
With the Africa Cup of Nations over and with just weeks to Super Eagles’ main assignment of qualifying for the World Cup which he was supposed to oversee the job suddenly evaporated.
He took to his Twitter handle to express his feelings. Sports Village Square observed that Peseiro has not been very active on Twitter even though he has nearly 106 thousand followers. He last tweeted on 30 November last year before his current tweet in which he posted a statement in his native Portuguese.
Peseiro indicated that there were disagreements regarding the contractual clause and financial matters.
