He Doesn’t Listen To Us – Super Eagles Assistant Coach Opens Up On Working With Peseiro
As Nigerians await the decision on the contract extension of the coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro, it appears all is not well within his camp, OGN can exclusively reveal.
Peseiro’s deal as coach of the Nigerian team will expire in June but there is a clause for a two year deal and it centres around winning the next Africa Cup of Nations originally planned for this year.
Following the postponement of the tournament to next year, there is no clear cut statement yet on his future with sources within the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) saying he will likely stay due to unpaid wages.
That decision isn’t one that has been made public yet but one of his assistants appears not to be comfortable with the Portuguese and his way of handling the team since he took over as coach.
” He doesn’t listen to us (Nigerian coaches) and it’s why he agrees to the idea of rotating the crew for games. If he does listen to us there is no way he will accept that but since he has his close circle intact, he doesn’t care”, one of his assistants said in a very bitter tone.
” You know he sent the guy who does video analysis out of a team meeting once, he doesn’t rely on Ike Shorunmu when calling up goalkeepers, we are not even allowed to scout or recommend players. It’s all about him and the people he brought with him”, he rounded up saying.
