Popular comedian Bovi has criticised Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro for his team’s failure against Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the recently ended Africa Cup of Nations, or AFCON.
Glamsquad reported that Nigeria fell 2-1 to the hosts, Cote d’Ivoire, on Sunday.
Bovi responded via his X handle, blaming coach Peseiro’s tactics for the three-time African champs’ loss.
He criticised Peseiro’s tactic of relying on defence rather than attack, stating that he would have been upset 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.”
