Peseiro Goes Tough On Players Diet, Distances Family, Friends from Team’s Hotel

In a bid to ensure his players make the cut against Leone Stars on Thursday, Coach Jose Peseiro on Sunday read a fresh riot act regarding teams’ diet and discipline around the hotels.

The former Venezuelan gaffer has warned Super Eagles stars to desist from over-feeding while in camp in a bit to stay fit for the tasks ahead.

Findings revealed that the Portuguese have also barred friends and families from visiting players in camp in a desperate measure to avoid distraction, which according to him could be counterproductive for the team.

” The new manager has warned the player to wary of how they eat in camp. Peseiro has fumed at over-feeding because he said such habits will surely take its toll on players at the long run.

” He also warned players to avoid all sorts of distractions coming from friends, and family members while in camp. Towards this end, anyone without any business in the camp are not allowed around the hotel,”.

Peseiro will face Sierra Leone in what will be his first official match as Nigeria’s gaffer after Super Eagles lost to Mexico and Ecuador in an international friendly match.
