Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has applied for the vacant coaching job of Egyptian club, Zamalek SC.
This was made known by the Egyptian website, Kooora, noting Peseiro is 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,” a reliable club source told Kooora.
“But he does not enjoy any preference. He is just one name among many CVs on the board of directors’ table.”
The Portuguese gaffer is not new to coaching in Egypt as he had a short stint with Al Ahly.
Nigeria Football Federation may not be happy with Peseiro’s decision to apply for the White Castle’s coaching job.
The 63-year-old penned a new short-term contract with the NFF in the summer.
He is currently under-fire following the Super Eagles of Nigeria’s poor start to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.
The Eagles are without a win after two games following their 1-1 draw against the Warriors of Zimbabwe on Sunday.
