The Nigeria Football Federation NFF has denied the rumors surrounding the future of Super Eagles Head Coach Jose Peseiro.
Peseiro’s future has dominated the media recently, and some reports suggested the Portuguese could walk out of his role as a result of poor treatment from the NFF.
Peseiro was hired six months ago as the permanent successor to sacked Gernot Rohr, but he is yet to receive a salary for the whole period.
The NFF in a statement, however, refuted the claims and insists the Portuguese is committed to what he is doing with the Super Eagles.
“Most of these speculations and innuendoes are simply ridiculous because we have no problem whatsoever with Mr. Peseiro”.
“He is doing his job as Head Coach of the Super Eagles and, contrary to some of the more fictitious claims, he has not reported the NFF to FIFA with regards to his wages”.
The Nigeria Football Governing Body also disclosed that they are working round the clock with the Ministry to ensure Peseiro is paid.
”The NFF and the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development are working on Mr. Peseiro’s wages and these will be settled shortly.”
“We have a friendly match against Portugal coming up in Lisbon on Thursday, 17th November. Mr. Peseiro has compiled a provisional list and is only waiting for this weekend’s matches to submit his list of 23 players.
“We have a cordial relationship with the Head Coach. He is doing his job and focused on his objectives. The media should desist from reports and speculations that are aimed at causing discontentment and disenchantment among the Ministry of Sports, NFF, and Mr. Peseiro, as all parties are working in harmony.
