NFF President speaks on Jose Peseiro`s expiring contract

-Denies reports of a search for new coach

President of the Nigeria Football Federation Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau has spoken up on the trending issues around Jose Peseiro`s expiring contract.

There have been reports linking the Nigeria with search for a new coach ahead of the Portuguese managers contract expiration in June but the NFF President has denied knowledge of such activity.

Alhaji Gusau however admitted Peseiro`s contract could be terminated but no decision has been reached by the Football Federation Board.

“I don’t know where they got these reports from because I have not mandated any body to search for a new coach neither has NFF opened discussions with anyone to replace our current coach, ” Gusau told Completesport.
To be candid we have not even at board level taken a decision on Peseiro’s contract not to talk of engaging a new coach,”
“All I can tell you is that the NFF will decide whether to extend Paseiro’s contract or terminate it soon when we meet.
Honestly, I don’t know where they got those stories from. Whatever decision we reach shall be made public” the NFF president stated.
Nigeria will face Sierra Leone in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier days in June before Jose Peseiro`s one-year contract expires.
