The Federation Of Algerian Football ( FAF) has concluded plans to hijack Jose Peseiro under the nose of the Nigeria Football Federation.
The Desert Foxes of Algeria are currently without a manager after Djamel Belmadi was relieved of his duty.
After winning the 2019 African Cup of Nations, Belmadi has failed to lead Algeria out of the group in the last two editions of the competition.
The football apex body in the country on Monday shortlisted 5 coaches and Nigeria’s Peseiro was among the listed coaches.
The four other listed coaches are Carlos Queiroz, Vladimir Petkovic, Vahid Halilhodzic and Hugo Broos of South Africa.
The Portuguese gaffer is yet to sign an extension with Nigeria after fulfilling his contractual terms.
