Super Eagles head coach Jose Paseiro says his current focus is to win the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) title with the Super Eagles.

Paseiro stated this while fielding questions from journalists during the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match between Sunshine Stars and Niger Tornadoes on Sunday in Akure.


He reiterated that his number one target was ensuring the country wins its fourth AFCON title, which Ivory Coast will host in 2024.

“If I could share my experience, my knowledge about everything I can do, it’s not my main goal; my main goal is that I want to win the next AFCON for the Super Eagles,” he said.

Paseiro said he came from Europe to improve his capacity by building the best relationship with players and their fans.

“We need to improve our league, our competitions, our formations, our facility, our support for media, our support for players,” he added.

The Super Eagles gaffer said he was happy with the level of improvement in the current season but called for more progress in the facility and players’ welfare.

Paseiro, who said Sunshine Stars were the only side he had seen twice, having watched them last season in Ilorin against Kwara United, commended the quality of goals being scored in the league, especially those he watched.

The coach, who also said the country was blessed with abundant talents, said he was in Akure to know the country better and know more about the home-based players.

“It’s a pleasure for me to be in Akure, to see Sunshine Stars against Niger Tornadoes. I saw the match. It is a good game, good quality, good players, good goals; the first goal and the second goal, with good management, with good assists in the game,” he explained. “I respect everyone, and we have to improve our league, formation, facilities and support for media and players and need to improve our orientation.”
