Former Nigeria head coach Christian Chukwu has cautioned the team’s new manager, Jose Peseiro, not to repeat the mistakes of his predecessor, Gernot Rohr.
Peseiro has been named the Super Eagles’ next permanent head coach.
The Portuguese will now lead the team in upcoming international friendlies against Ecuador and Mexico.
He will also prepare the three-time African champions for the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.
During his time, Rohr rarely lived in Nigeria throughout the almost five and half years he was in charge of the Eagles. The 68-year-old Franco-German also did not reckon with players in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
“I’m very happy so that it does not delay our preparation for Nations Cup qualifiers and let’s see what he will do when he comes,” Chukwu told Brila FM about the hiring of Jose Peseiro
“I will like him to live here, monitor our leagues and our players; let him not be like Rohr who stayed in Germany. Then days to the match, he will come back to the country with the players and so on.
“I will like this one to stay in Nigeria if they have accommodation for him and everything and let’s see how it goes.”
