Peseiro breaks silence on Super Eagles return


Jose Peseiro has insisted that nobody has contacted him about returning as the head coach of the Super Eagles.

The Portuguese coach stated this in an interview with Soccernet.

Peseiro left the role after his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, elapsed in February.

Subsequently, the NFF announced a vacancy for the role, with various candidates, including Emmanuel Amunike and Michael Nsien, being linked to the role.

Also, three European coaches, Danny Bujis, Domenec Torrent, and Toni Conceicao, made the final shortlist.

Amidst all of this, there were speculations that Peseiro could be asked to return to the team.

It was suggested that the 63-year-old is in discussions with the Ministry of Sports.

But Peseiro has denied the speculation, saying neither the Ministry nor the NFF has reached out to him.

According to him, he is currently enjoying his holiday and keeping up with matches, including upcoming games involving Real Madrid.
