With the Portuguese strategist leading the Super Eagles to the 2023 AFCON final, there would be no shortage of suitors.

The Algeria Football Federation are keen on appointing Jose Peseiro as the head coach of their national team, Soccernet.ng reports.In his first attempt to become one of the most well-liked coaches on the continent, Peseiro guided Nigeria’s Super Eagles to the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire this month.

Peseiro, the Portuguese tactiucian, is the favorite of the Algeria FF to defeat the Desert Warriors following his successes at the AFCON, DZ Foot reports.The 60-year-old Swiss Vladimir Petkovic and former Real Madrid coach Carlos Queiroz are two more contenders on the FAF’s wish list. Algeria defeated Nigeria in the semifinals of the 2019 AFCON to win it all. But in the 2021 and 2023 iterations, the Fennec Foxes were eliminated in the group stage and have lost their last six games in the competition.

Walid Sadi, the manager of Algeria FF, is allegedly in contact with Peseiro, but the Portuguese strategist is holding off to get clarification over his status with the Nigeria Football Federation.The Nigerian national team’s contract with the former Porto manager expired at the end of the AFCON, but it’s unclear if the NFF wants to renew it. In May 2022, Peseiro was named head coach of the Super Eagles. Since then, the 63-year-old has overseen 22 games, with a record of 10 victories, 5 draws, and 7 losses. The most    heartbreaking of the losses occurred on Sunday in Abidjan when the AFCON title was won by hosts Cote d’Ivoire over Nigeria 2-1.
