Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has explained the reason behind his decision to accept a short-term contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Peseiro’s previous contract expired at the end of June.
The 63-year-old recently penned a new six-month deal that will expire at the end of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations set to be hosted by Cote d’Ivoire between January 13 to February 11.
The Portuguese stated that the desire to win the AFCON was the main reason behind his decision.
“Me and my staff did everything in order to stay here to train these players and reach the big goal – win the AFCON title,” Peseiro told Brila FM.
The Super Eagles have won the AFCON title three times in the past.
