Peseiro Aims Dig At Osimhen – We Don’t Have Messi Or Ronaldo In Super Eagles, I Can Do Without You

The coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro isn’t happy with Napoli star player Victor Osimhen over his decision not to honour the invitation sent to him for the friendly game against Portugal.

Nigeria will prosecute the game without the services of the Napoli man who withdrew out of the squad due to an injury picked up while on club duty last weekend in the Serie A. A game which he lasted the entire duration of the game and also scored.

While Peseiro isn’t contesting that he is injured, the coach wanted him to be in camp like Calvin Bassey who is also injured but is in camp as it is the last time the squad will be together this year.

He didn’t hide his unhappiness and in a chat with some of the backroom staff of the team while speaking on players who don’t regard games of the senior national team of Nigeria.

” He (Peseiro) didn’t mention Osimhen but we know he is referring to him when he said we don’t have a Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo in our team, so I can do without any player. That is the kind of straightforward person. He worked with Jose Mourinho so no surprises”, he told OwnGoalNigeria in an exclusive chat from the team’s base in Portugal.
