NFF to decide Peseiro’s fate at emergency meeting

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is set for an emergency meeting to decide whether to extend Jose Peseiro’s contract with the Super Eagles or allow him to leave following the conclusion of the 34th Africa Cup of Nations.
Peseiro’s initial contract was extended to after the AFCON as stipulated in his deal, which was expected to have ended last year if the championship had held as scheduled from January to February 2023. 
NFF President, Ibrahim Gusau, had told the media that the Portuguese’s contract would not be extended no matter the outcome of the 2023 AFCON, but some members of the federation’s board started pleading for his continued stay when the national team, against all expectations, marched confidently to the final of the competition.  
According to a board member, who pleaded anonymity, the manner of Sunday’s defeat has shown that Peseiro is not the right coach to lead the team to success.
