Peseiro reiterates his commitment to the Super Eagles, denies ties with Zamalek
Nigeria head coach Jose Peceiro has debunked reports that he has applied to coach Egyptian club Zamalek SC.
The 63-year-old is said to have submitted his resume to Zamalek management for the vacant coaching position.
But Peceiro said his focus is on the Super Eagles job.
“At the moment, my focus is only on the Nigeria national team,” the Portuguese told btolat.com.
“In any case, there are no negotiations from Zamalek’s side and we are not considering anything else.”
Peseiro has signed a contract extension with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
He is under pressure after the Super Eagles got off to a poor start in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
There were persistent calls for his sacking after the Super Eagles could only draw in their opening two matches against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
