Under-fire Super Eagles Head Coach, Jose Peseiro, is one of the coaches being considered to replace sacked Colombian Coach, Juan Carlos Osorio, at Egypt’s Zamalek.

The Portuguese gaffer who sealed a new Nigerian deal to continue as Super Eagles supremo last June has only picked two points from a possible six against two of Africa’s minnow teams, Lesotho and Zimbabwe in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

If South Africa pick another win today in Bafana Bafana’s second Group C game against Rwanda, Peseiro’s Super Eagles will be four points below rivals South Africa.

Egypt’s news outlet, Kooora, quoted an official source at Zamalek Club yesterday, hinting that Peseiro is one of the candidates to lead the club following the sacking of Osorio

The Zamalek Council decided to dismiss Osorio due to poor results, the most recent of which was a defeat by the newly promoted Z team to the Premier League

However, the chances of Peseiro getting the job is reportedly slim owing to the quality of his CV.

According to the publication, “But he (Peseiro) does not enjoy any preference. He is just one name among many CVs on the board of directors’ table.”

The source further 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.”

He concluded: “The Board of Directors supports Motamed Jamal, the interim technical director, and it is possible that he will be present until the suspension period next January, in the event that a foreign technical director is not contracted,” concludes the unnamed source.
