Segun Odegbami, a former international, has urged the Nigeria Football Federation to hire an indigenous coach to lead the Super Eagles.

Odegbami stated that Nigeria needed a stronger hand to handle the Super Eagles in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Lagos State.

Jose Peseiro, the Portuguese manager, announced his resignation as the Super Eagles’ coach after his contract officially ended on Thursday.At the 2023 African Cup of Nations, Peseiro led the Eagles to a second-place result on Friday.

He expressed his satisfaction with leading the West African country.If we continue to live in our colonial mindset, where we believe that only white people can guide us to success, we will be enslaved for eternity.

We constantly hear about Nigerians who are achieving success in all spheres of life and who are emigrating from their nation to assist other nations.Football is a basic game; it is not rocket science.

There are many Nigerians among us who are fully qualified to lead us to any height.”I am done with the colonial mindset, and I am tired of having foreign coaches. It is time for a Nigerian coach to take charge of our national team, Odegbami declared.

He pushed Peseiro, the former coach of the Super Eagles, to step down from his position.Peseiro had done mediocre as the Super Eagles’ coach, according to Odegbami.”Peseiro did not step down as the narrative is being promoted.

The story ends here because his contract expired and was not renewed.“Peseiro got a reward that has never been given to any coach in the world, not because he won the AFCON, but because he came second.“He should leave Nigeria alone to face the future.

We need a coach who will take us to win something because we are tired of coaches who cannot win anything for us, ” he noted.
