The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced the retention of Austin Eguavoen as the interim head coach of the Super Eagles.

The federation said it won’t move forward with the agreement with Jose Peseiro who was expected to take charge of the team after the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The NFF made the announcement in a statement issued yesterday.

In December 2021, Peseiro was appointed as the permanent replacement for Gernot Rohr who was sacked just a few weeks before AFCON.

Emmanuel Amunike, former Eagles midfielder, was named as the team’s assistant coach alongside Salisu Yusuf.

“The NFF Board has approved a recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee retaining Augustine Eguavoen as Technical Director/Technical Adviser (interim) while Emmanuel Amuneke becomes the Chief Coach of the Super Eagles. Salisu Yusuf will be the 2nd Assistant Coach/Chief Coach of the CHAN team and Joseph Yobo will be 3rd Assistant while Aloysius Agu remains the Goalkeepers’ Trainer,” the statement reads.

“We acknowledge and appreciate the interest that Mr Jose Peseiro has shown in Nigeria Football during our very cordial discussions and have absolutely no doubt about his capacity. We believe that perhaps in the future, there could be an opportunity to work with him.
