NFF president Ibrahim Gusau has said negotiations are going on with Jose Peseiro over a new contract as coach of the Super Eagles.

Gusau disclosed that Peseiro’s one-year contract ended last month, but due to the delay in the 2023 AFCON, on which the contract was based, the football federation will now have to discuss a new contract with the Portuguese coach.

“His contract ended in July and we’re now talking to him and his lawyers,” Gusau said.

“We hope to conclude very soon and a decision will be made based on the recommendations of the technical committee.”

The Super Eagles round up their qualifying campaign for the 2023 AFCON on September 10 in Uyo against Sao Tome and Principe.

Gusau said the contract of coach of the country’s women’s team, Randy Waldrum, has also expired after he led them to the Round of 16 at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

He said a decision on Waldrum will also have to be taken soon as the team will begin qualification campaign for the 2024 Paris Olympics next month.
