Peseiro officially accepts pay cut to continue as Super Eagles coach



The head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has accepted a pay cut to continue in the role.

Peseiro on Sunday, reached an agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to be paid lower than $70,000 per month.

As stipulated in the original contract, drawn in May 2022, the Portuguese has been handed the mandate to lead the Super Eagles to, in the minimum, the semi finals of the 34th Africa Cup of Nations finals taking place in Cote d’Ivoire in a few months.

Peseiro has steered the Super Eagles through the qualifiers and to a ticket with a match to spare, including a 10-0 record international win against Sao Tome and Principe in Agadir, Morocco in June 2022.

He has now agreed to continue in the role after accepting a pay cut on his earlier terms, with the new agreement also putting him in charge of the Super Eagles B – the home-based professionals who contest the biennial African Nations Championship.
