Jose Peseiro is excited with his appointment as the Super Eagles new head coach and tweeted on Wednesday afternoon, reports Megasportsarena.com.
“Pride! It is with great pride and joy that I am the coach of one of the greatest football nations in the world. Commanding the Super Eagles starts with knowing how to respect history, value it and be inspired by its roots.”
The Portuguese looks set to roll up his sleeves and address the yearnings of the Nigerian football public who wants nothing but success for the national football team, and he stated just that in his next tweet.
“Over 200 million Nigerians, from all states and ethnicities, want the same thing: success. We will work with great ambition, so that in the end we can finally call Nigeria the “four-time African champions!”
The Portuguese will be officially unveiled early next month, after the team’s two international friendly matches with Mexico on the 28th of May and Ecuador on June 2nd in America.
