Jose Peseiro, the head coach of the Super Eagles, could be in hot water with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
This follows the revelation from Egyptian giants Zamalek that Peseiro submitted his CV to them.
The Portuguese, either by himself or through a proxy, has applied for the role despite being contractually tied to the NFF.
An unnamed Zamalek official 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 highly-rated 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.”
“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 added.
Zamalek are searching for a new coach following the dismissal of Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio amid a series of disappointing results.
