In a bold move that underscores his commitment to victory, Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro has willingly accepted a pay cut. His sole objective: to lead Nigeria to triumph in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) hosted in Ivory Coast.
Under Peseiro’s guidance, Nigeria finished as group leaders with an impressive 15 points from six matches, setting the stage for their AFCON journey. Peseiro’s dedication to the team’s success was evident as he shared his motivation, stating, “Me and my staff did everything in order to stay here to train these players and reach the big goal, win the AFCON title.”
This decision comes on the heels of Peseiro signing a new six-month contract extension, which will see him in charge throughout the AFCON tournament, scheduled from January 13 to February 11, 2024, in Cote d’Ivoire.
Peseiro’s unwavering commitment to the Super Eagles’ cause has bolstered the team’s confidence and aspirations for AFCON glory. With a coach willing to make personal sacrifices, Nigeria’s path to success in the tournament seems more promising than ever.
