  • Jose Peseiro's contract as the Super Eagles coach will expire at the end of June
  • The Nigerian Football Federation chiefs have given the Portuguese condition for him to continue
  • Peseiro recently qualified the Super Eagles for the 2023 African Cup of Nations holding in Ivory Coast

The Nigerian Football Federation Chiefs have reportedly communicated with the Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro that he will have to take a pay cut for him to continue as the gaffer of the three-time African champions.

Peseiro's contract as Super Eagles handler will expire at the end of June, and there have been concerns from fans that the NFF should not retain the Portuguese.

The former Venezuela handler was hired by the ex-NFF board under Amaju Pinnick after the Super Eagles failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Since he was appointed as coach, the NFF has been struggling to pay his salary as there are reports that Peseiro is being owed.

How much is Peseiro collecting?

The former Saudi Arabia boss is on $70,000 monthly as Super Eagles coach and the NFF eggheads want the money to be cut down according to the report on Complete Sports.

As things stand now, it is either Peseiro accepts the proposal from the NFF bosses or he walks away.

Victor Osimhen nets brace

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Victor Osimhen on Sunday evening, June 18, scored a brace for the Super Eagles in their African Cup of Nations qualifying encounter against Sierra Leone in Monrovia which ended in a 3-2 win.

Going into this game, Jose Peseiro and his wards knew they only needed a draw to qualify for the 2024 African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

Goalkeeper Adeleye started in goal for the Super Eagles making his debut while former Chelsea player Kenneth Omeruo captained the Nigerian national team.

The three-time African champions started the duel impressively with the duo of Moses Simon and Osimhen tormenting the defense of the hosts.
