Super Eagles players want Peseiro to continue – Troost-Ekong

 Nigeria defender, William Troost-Ekong, has said he and his teammates will be happy to see Jose Peseiro remain in charge of the Super Eagles.

Peseiro’s future remains uncertain following the expiration of his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The Portuguese has been courted by the Algeria Football Federation.

The 63-year-old guided the Super Eagles to a second-place finish at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Troost-Ekong revealed that the players want the gaffer to sign a contract extension.

“Yes. I think the players are happy with him. Reaching the final is something significant and also something we can build on,” Troost-Ekong said in an exclusive interview with CNN World Sports Amanda Davies.

“However, on what he had in mind, I did try to ask him before we left and he said he’s going to call me back. I think I’m just as much in the dark as you guys are but I think all the players would be happy to see him back.”
