The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has said they hired Jose Peseiro as the new boss of the national team because of his impressive resume.

The Portuguese coach has signed an initial two-year contract and will be at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations as an observer.

Interim coach, Augustine Eguavoen, will still be in charge for the tournament.

Peseiro is believed to come highly recommended by former Manchester United and Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho.

NFF Vice President, Shehu Dikko, says Peseiro’s wealth of experience gave him the edge over other candidates.

“He has coached across the world, in Asia, in Europe, South America, in Africa.

“He has worked with big coaches like (Jose) Mourinho and (Carlos) Queiroz, coached at a big club like Real Madrid, coached big players and small players, coached in the World Cup qualifiers, UEFA Cup, UEFA Champions League and so on.

“He is also well educated, with a masters degree in Sports Science.

“He might not have won anything. But we believe he’ll bring value to our team,” Dikko told ESPN.

Peseiro replaces Gernot Rohr who was dismissed last month.
