The Super Eagles have their best crop of players in recent years but the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has come under criticism for their lack of direction.
The NFF reportedly issued an ultimatum to Jose Peseiro after his contract with the Football Federation expired.
The 63-year-old Portuguese coach took the Super Eagles job in May last year after Nigeria failed to qualify for the World Cup.
After nine games in the role, with four wins and five defeats, he has managed to qualify Nigeria for the African Cup of Nations tournament in Ivory Coast next year.
His contract, however, expired at the end of July, but according to reports, he is staying in the role due to his love for the job.
Despite qualifying Nigeria for next year's African Cup of Nations, the NFF is insisting that the former Porto coach should take a pay cut before he can be given a new deal.

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, and the Super Falcons have been in a head-to-head battle about FIFA money, but the governing body has now responded.
The chairman of the Technical and Development Committee of the NFF, Alhaji Sheriff Rabiu Inuwa, disclosed that the federation issued Peseiro a three-day ultimatum to either accept or reject the new terms and conditions.
The NFF, however, have explained that they can no longer afford to pay his $70,000 monthly salary, and if he refuses to take a pay cut, it will be goodbyes.
“The Technical Committee has given him [Peseiro] three days to respond to our proposed pay cut or we disengage him finally,” Alhaji Sherrif said, according to Complete Sports.
“We will allow him to continue if he accepts a reduction in his 70,000 USD monthly salary and other conditions of service.
“If he turns down our proposal, we will consider appointing a coach to oversee the dead rubber game against Sao Tome and Principe in Uyo, then we start to search for a new substantive coach that the NFF can afford to pay his salary. ”
