Peseiro refused to deny Reports Linking Him with the Vacant Zamalek Coaching Job
Super Eagles Manager Jose Peseiro has refused to deny reports in the Local and Egyptian media linking him with the vacant Zamalek coaching job.
It has been suggested that the Portuguese football tactician is in talks with the leadership of Zamalek over succeeding Colombian Coach Juan Carlos Osorio, who was dismissed following a poor run of results.
Ahmed Salem, the official spokesman for Zamalek, earlier dismissed speculation in the media that the club have completed an agreement with Peseiro in order to take over the managerial position at the five-time African champions, and what is being said in this regard is completely untrue.
However, it is confirmed that Peseiro has applied for the vacant Zamalek coaching job and his curriculum vitae was submitted to the board of directors.
When asked to respond to reports that linked him to entering into negotiations with Zamalek club at the present time, and being close to leaving the Super Eagles, Peseiro said to Elwatan sport that time was not appropriate to talk on it.
How can a star-studded Super Eagles fight so desperately to secure a draw with Lesotho in Uyo?
What went wrong that a number-153 FIFA-ranked team can stroll into the nest of champions and arrogantly walk away with a point?
Then, to add insult to injury, we fought so hard to hold on to another disappointing draw with 125th-ranked Zimbabwe.
The Chairman of the Federal Capital Territory Football Association, Mouktar Mohammed, said the recent poor performances recorded by the Eagles call for deep soul searching.
We are walking a tightrope. This last result makes it very difficult for us now, Mohammed said.
We have a lot of work to do to get near-perfect results in June 2024, when the qualifications resume.
We need to look deeper into the problems behind why our Super Eagles are not tops in Africa. A lot of questions need to be answered, he said.
Meanwhile, an executive member of the NFF, Nse Essien, revealed that the federation wouldn’t hesitate to sack Peseiro if they had the money to pay him off.
If we had the money, we would be willing to relive him, we’re not happy, he said.
Everybody is asking for the sack of the head coach.
It’s unfortunate that we only have two points from a possible six. We’re in a very precarious situation.
