Sack Peseiro, hire Mourinho, fans charge NFF

A few hours after Jose Peseiro was fired by Italian powerhouse AS Roma, a number of Nigerians turned to social media to demand that the Nigeria Football Federation sign the Portuguese manager to coach the senior men’s national team of their nation.

Following nearly three years as manager at the Stadio Olimpico, Mourinho was fired by the Serie A team.

Less than a month after being fired from his position at Tottenham Hotspur, the 60-year-old assumed the position in May 2021. He went on to lead his team to the Europa Conference League championship in 2022 and the Europa League final in 2023.

But the Serie A team’s five-point deficit from Champions League qualification berths this season was sufficient to force the club to part company with the special one.

Mourinho was rumored to have requested a new contract extension from Roma, where his existing contract was set to expire at the end of the current campaign. Roma’s decision to end the agreement before it expires means that the Giallorossi will have to pay the former Chelsea manager £3 million.

The Portuguese, who was fired five times before to his most recent termination, is thought to have made about £80 million from his career’s layoffs from clubs.

Chelsea has given him around £26 million in compensation alone. Mourinho received £18 million after his firing at Stamford Bridge in 2007 and £8.3 million after his second firing in 2015.

Shortly after signing a new two-year deal that would have kept him in Manchester United until 2020, he was fired in December 2018 and received a payout of £17 million from Real Madrid and around £20 million from Manchester United.

A miserable 17-month stay at Tottenham culminated in a sacking and a substantial £15 million in payout. When he was let go by the Spurs, he still had two years left on his contract.

Although the “Special One” has drawn incredible crowds, some Nigerian football fans are urging the NFF board, led by Ibrahim Gusua, to hire the Portuguese.

“What is the NFF waiting for after AFCON?” questioned Adeola Omole. Obtain the genuine José.

Olawale Babatunde, meanwhile, thinks Mourinho ought to be chosen right away.

“Let him add AFCON to his cabinet, just for one month,” Titan Chinakwe continued.

Solomon “I believe that now is the best time for the NFF to go for him instead of the other Jose that we have as coach,” David tweeted. “Mourinho needs time off from all the pressure in Europe.”

Mazi felt that Mourinho ought to take over as the Eagles’ manager instead of making recommendations.

“Since we are aware of the result of his proposal, he ought not to suggest for us once more. If he really has our best interests at heart, he ought to come take over the Eagles now that he is free to do so.

“He might be traveling to the Ivory Coast to help his friend Peseiro,” Anthony Ade continued.
