I’m the best man to replace Jose Peseiro – American coach

Michael Nsien, an American tactician of Nigerian descent, has claimed he is the right man to succeed Jose Peseiro as the coach of Super Eagles.

The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) are in the hunt for a new coach for the Super Eagles of Nigeria after Jose Peseiro left at the expiration of his contract last month.

Nsien said during an interview with TVC that he has what it takes to be manage the Nigerian national football team which has been without a coach since Peseiro’s exit.

The 43-year-old former defender is head coach of the United States U-19 team. He once represented Nigeria at the U-23 level.

Nsien said; “I am the best of both worlds. As a Nigerian-American, I have a passion for the Super Eagles; I also know the responsibilities that come with that position as head coach.

“I have experience working in an environment that spares no expenses in technology, has top scouting infrastructure, and coaching collaboration from top to bottom.

“I know where we are at in Nigerian football, and I know the gap that exists. I can bridge the gap and help us reach the level that we should be at in world football. It’s time to change course and move forward. I want to put smiles on the faces of our people.”
