Head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro has revealed why he has taken a pay cut to continue in the role.
According to the Portuguese, he is optimistic of winning next year’s Africa Cup of Nations with the current squad.
Nigeria qualified for the tournament top of the Group A qualifying series with 15 points from six fixtures.
The Portuguese tactician who recently accepted a pay cut in a bid to remain as coach of the senior national team, told Brila FM in a chat that the desire to win the 2023 AFCON was the main reason behind his decision.
“Me and my staff did everything in order to stay here to train these players and reach the big goal, win the AFCON title,” Peseiro told Brila FM.
The 63-year-old recently penned a new six-month deal that will expire at the end of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations set to be hosted by Cote d’Ivoire between January 13 to February 11.
