The former Sporting Lisbon manager was in charge of the Super Eagles for 22 months, during which time he led Nigeria to ten wins, five draws, and seven defeats in 22 games.

Peseiro’s Super Eagles also failed to impress many at the AFCON as they reached the final, relying more on the team’s defensive solidity than attacking brilliance.

The 63-year-old coach as often praised his experience and mental fortitude for the resilience he had against his critics.

And the former Real Madrid assistant coach has warned other coaches jostling to be named the Super Eagles next boss to be aware of the unpleasant ingredients that come with the job.
