Coach Jose Peseiro to leave Super Eagles after 2023 AFCON


Coach Jose Peseiro to leave Super Eagles after 2023 AFCON

A top source at Egyptian side, Zamalek, has revealed that the head coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, will leave the team at the end of the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.

Owngoalnigeria.com reports that Peseiro’s deal with the Nigeria team will run out after the tournament, although there is an option of a further two-year deal after he took the team to the semifinal of the AFCON, hence meeting the target for an extension.

However, the extension is down to him accepting it and he confirmed last week that he isn’t keen on extending stay with the Super Eagles, but it is believed that he will come clear with his decision at the end of the tournament.

From the look of things, it appears a deal has been struck already with the Portuguese to take over at Zamalek with a source saying a welcome video is being prepared by the club with materials from a Nigerian photographer, who is at AFCON.

“They paid a photographer in Nigeria good money to get them pictures and videos for the unveiling immediately after the tournament. An agreement is on ground already and it is why Zamalek still hasn’t appointed a manager in permanent capacity,” the source said.

“At Zamalek, he will earn more than what he’s earning now with the Super Eagles. Unless he has a change of mind, it’s common knowledge in Egypt that he’s the next coach of Zamalek. They are waiting for him,” he concluded.
