Osimhen backs Peseiro to lead Super Eagles to 2023 AFCON


Victor Osimhen believes coach Jose Peseiro is good enough to lead the Super Eagles to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.

Peseiro’s contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) ran out at the end of last month.

The Portuguese’s fate is yet to be decided a few days into the new month.

NFF president, Shehu Gusau stated in an interview last month that the football house will seek public opinion before taking a decision on Peseiro’s future.

Osimhen has, however, voiced his opinion and wants the former Saudi Arabia and Venezuela coach to remain in charge of the three-time African champions.

“The coach is tactically sound and he is in control of the Super Eagles squad, which is very, very important,” Osimhen told Wazobia FM Radio Lagos.

“He knows what he wants,” he added.
