Sani Fema, a former board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has said the Super Eagles don’t need manager, Jose Peseiro to deliver because the team consists of a group of talented players.
Fema said this while reacting to Super Eagles’ 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, qualifier 1-0 win against the Djurtus of Guinea Bissau at the Estádio 24 de Setembro Stadium on Monday.
According to him, the Super Eagles’ performance in Bissau showed that the team was capable of confronting and beating any team in the world, including Brazil, but that it lacked the technical crew and a good coach to bring out the best in the players.
“We can play Brazil with the same players, but the problem is that we don’t have a good coach, I’m sorry to say this; our technical crew isn’t good enough, but we have the players to play any team in the world,” Fema told NAN.
“You can see that the players did well in Guinea Bissau, most especially in the first half, the host could not attack them.
“I’m so impressed with the team, but like I said, we lack a good technical crew.
“I’m not supporting Peserio, I prefer our local coaches.”
He added, “We have potential coaches, the likes of Sunday Oliseh and Emmanuel Amuneke.”
