Popular comedian Bovi says Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro is responsible for Nigeria’s defeat against Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.
Super Eagles fell 2-1 to the hosts, Cote d’Ivoire, on Sunday as the hosts won their third ever AFCON trophy right in front of their home fans.
Taking to his X handle, Bovi blamed coach Peseiro’s tactics for the three-time African champions’ defeat.
He knocked Peseiro’s strategy of relying on defense, stressing that he would have still not been pleased should 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.”
