Peterside Idah, a former Nigerian international, argues that Coach Jose Peseiro should be dismissed despite guiding the Super Eagles to a second-place finish in the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). Nigeria suffered a 1-2 defeat to Ivory Coast in the final match on Sunday night. Despite Peseiro taking the team to their first AFCON final since 2013, Peterside insists that it is time for Peseiro to part ways with the team.
“You know, a lot of people have asked me yesterday, the coach got to the finals?
What do you think? I said, fire him!” Peterside said on Monday’s edition of Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
