If speculations in Egypt is anything to go by, Super Eagles’ under-fire manager, Jose Peseiro may dump the team soon.
According to an Egyptian publication, Kooora, an official source at Zamalek Club has revealed that Portuguese Peseiro is a candidate to lead the club following the sacking of Colombian Juan Carlos 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, the source added: “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.”
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.”
