Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick has argued that Jose Peseiro would be the best man to lead the Super Eagles should he reconsider taking up the top post.
Pinnick said in an interview that Peseiro, who has again been linked with the Super Eagles, knows the country’s top players very well.
“He’s a top, top coach,” remarked Pinnick.
“If he wants to come, we won’t debate it. It’s a no brainer.”
Peseiro was designated to take over the Super Eagles after the recent AFCON in Cameroon.
However, caretaker coach Augustine Eguavoen’s appointment was extended to cover the 2022 World Cup playoffs against Ghana.
The NFF are expected to soon appoint a foreign coach for the Super Eagles.
