Newly-employed Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro, has shown he is a no-nonsense professional, after he banned the players from wearing earrings and rings to training, as Nigeria face Sierra Leone on Thursday in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Abuja.

“He has told the players that he does not want to see anyone wearing finger rings to training and no earrings at all,” a top team official told totorinews.

The Eagles have lost their first two games under the Portuguese coach, who was recently given a year’s contract.

On Thursday, Peseiro will take charge of his first official game when the Eagles welcome Sierra Leone in a 2023 AFCON qualifier.

“The players love his style of training.

“Nigerians will see a different Super Eagles under Peseiro.”
