Peseiro to accept pay cut to remain coach

Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro is willing to accept a salary cut to continue as head.

Peseiro who currently earns $70,000 per month on his contract which expires in June, is yet to agree on fresh terms with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, which has led to speculations that another coach could be hired.

Ibrahim Gusau-led NFF board is struggling to meet up with Peseiro’s huge salary, which was negotiated by the Amaju Pinnick board.

Initially, it was believed that the Eagles handler’s salary would be paid by the Presidency, but that has not been feasible, with the coach being owed six months’ arrears.

The only option available to the NFF is if Peseiro agrees to a pay cut, that will form a benchmark for whoever agrees to take up the job in the future.
