Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has applied for the vacant coaching job of Egyptian club, Zamalek SC.
Egyptian website, Kooora reports that Peseiro’s name is listed among the coaches who have submitted their CV’s for the top job.
Zamalek are in the market for a new coach after recently sacking Colombian, Juan Carlos Osorio for poor results.
“Jose Peseiro is among the names already nominated to lead Zamalek. But he does not enjoy any preference. He is just one name among many CVs on the board of directors’ table,” a club source told Kooora.
This is coming after Peseiro, 63, penned a new short-term contract with the Nigeria Football Federation in the summer.
CorrectNG recalls reported that he said Super Eagles players pushed him to accept a reduction in salary from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The Portuguese coach agreed to a pay cut this summer so that he could remain in charge of the Nigerian national football team. The 63-year-old told Skysports that his players begged him to stay so they can win the tournament.
Peseiro said; “The players pushed me to stay because they believe we can win (the AFCON) We can win it. The players know it. They come with the same energy, the same belief, to fight for the Super Eagles.”
