AFCON 2023: Bovi blames Peseiro for Nigeria’s defeat

Popular comedian Bovi has blamed Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro for his team’s defeat against Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

DAILY POST reports that Nigeria lost 2-1 to the hosts, Cote d’Ivoire, on Sunday.

Reacting via his X handle, Bovi blamed coach Peseiro’s tactics for the three-time African champions’ defeat.

He faulted Peseiro’s strategy of relying on defense rather than attack, stressing that he would have still been pissed even if Nigeria had won.

Bovi wrote: “Blame the coach. We are a footballing nation of flare. Fluidity, through passes, dribbles, attack. Not all out defence. Even if we’d won, I would still be pissed. The style was evidently alien to the players.”
