Jose Peseiro, the gaffer of the Super Eagles, has refused to give affirmative comment on his future with the three-time African champions ahead of the battle against Sierra Leone.

It has been a year since the Portuguese was appointed as the coach of the Super Eagles. He replaced Austin Eguavoen, who failed to qualify Nigeria for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Peseiro was hired under the Amaju Pinnick-led Nigerian Football Federation board and he was reported to have signed a one-year deal.

The results he has gotten so far as Super Eagles coach have not been impressive, and that has led to many Nigerian football fans urging the new NFF chiefs to let him go.

According to reports on Complete Sports and Daily Post, Peseiro explained that his future plan is to train the Super Eagles players.

Peseiro on Super Eagles' future

“My future with the Super Eagles is to train today, and tomorrow prepare for the Sierra Leone game, beat them, and qualify for AFCON.''

The last time Nigeria won the AFCON title was in 2013 under late coach, Stephen Keshi.

Peseiro wants to qualify the Super Eagles for the next edition and try his best to lift the title.

Peseiro makes a big revelation

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Jose Peseiro offered some words of comfort to the Flying Eagles of Nigeria after they crashed out of the 2023 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Argentina.

After beating the host nation in the round of 16, the Flying Eagles were tipped to go far in the competition, but their journey was ended by South Korea, who recorded a 1-0 win on June 4.

The defeat came as a disappointing one for many Nigerian football fans, who were expecting to see the Flying Eagles in the final.

Peseiro explained that the Flying Eagles tried their best, stressing that they were not embarrassed in the competition.
