Disloyal Peseiro faces wrath of NFF as Zamalek confirm Super Eagles coach's CV has been submitted

Jose Peseiro might have landed himself in hot water with the Nigeria Football Federation after an official of Zamalek confirmed that the Board of Directors of Zamalek have the curriculum vitae of the Portuguese football tactician.


Peseiro, either by himself or through a proxy, has applied for the vacant Zamalek coaching job despite his contractual obligations with the Nigerian Federation, which is tantamount to being disloyal to his employers..


Zamalek are searching for a new coach following the dismissal of Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio amid a series of disappointing results.


An unnamed official of Zamalek confirmed that Peseiro is among the candidates for the vacant job but underlined that no agreement has been reached with the Super Eagles coach and what is being said about the 63-year-old taking over the managerial role is completely false. 


A Zamalek official told influential Arabic sports website Kooora: "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."


He added: “The football administration, represented by the board of directors duo, Ahmed Suleiman and Hussein Al-Sayed, has not finished working on this file and has not settled on a specific name yet, and it is still in the study stage.”

Peseiro's job as Super Eagles coach is hanging by a thread after the national team began the 2026 World Cup qualifiers on a disappointing note, with back-to-back draws against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
