The Nigeria Football Federation named Jose Peseiro as the new head coach of the national team on Sunday.
However, according to OwnGoalNigeria, Peseiro has only been given a one-year deal to lead the Super Eagles.
The 12-month contract is renewable based on performance-related terms.
The NFF is said to have offered Peseiro a short-term contract due to their legal struggle over payments with former Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr.
FIFA has already ordered the federation to pay Rohr the sum of $380,000 as compensation for breach of contract.
Peseiro’s first matches in charge will be the friendlies against Ecuador and Mexico in the US.
The games will be followed by the qualifiers for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
