Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Ibrahim Gusau has denied reports that the body has decided to part ways with Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro.
Peseiro’s future has dominated the media lately, with reports claiming the NFF is shopping for a potential replacement.
The 63 year-old’s contract expires this month, but both sides have been silent on a new deal.
“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 Complete Sport.
“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.”
Gusau however confirmed the NFF will meet and take a decision on the coach in the coming weeks.
“All I can tell you is that the NFF will decide whether to extend Peseiro’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.”
Peseiro was hired in May of 2022, replacing interim coach Austin Eguavoen who returned to his technical director role after the World Cup qualifiers.
