NFF lists criteria for successor to Jose Peseiro as Super Eagles coach

Posted : 08 March 2024

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has recently disclosed the specific attributes they are prioritizing in the search for the next head coach of the Super Eagles.

This quest for a new helmsman comes on the heels of the departure of Jose Peseiro, who concluded his tenure with the Nigerian Federation on March 1, 2024, upon the expiration of his contract. Originally intended for retention due to his success in leading the team to surpass the Nigerian Federation's target of reaching the semifinals of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, Peseiro opted to end his 21-month collaboration due to financial considerations.

In their pursuit of a forward-thinking leader to guide the Super Eagles, the NFF, via their official website, has outlined four essential qualities that the ideal candidate should possess. Firstly, the chosen Super Eagles coach must hold the requisite coaching qualifications suitable for overseeing a national team and should demonstrate a proven track record of managing football at the highest level.

Furthermore, the incoming coach is expected to boast a successful history of steering teams to victories, with an emphasis on effective leadership. While not obligatory, knowledge of African football is viewed as a valuable asset for the prospective candidate.

During Peseiro's tenure in the Super Eagles dugout, the national team achieved a record of eleven wins, four draws, and seven losses in his twenty-two games in charge. These statistics serve as a benchmark against which the NFF may gauge the success of the future head coach.
