He disclosed that he told the national teams or clubs that reached out to him to wait till the end of the month. He, however, did not reveal their identity.

“I told everyone to come back at the end of the month. What is certain is that I want to continue coaching and I need to choose wisely.”

Peseiro added that:

“At this moment, I repeat, all options remain possible. I received a lot of options and a lot of contacts from national teams or clubs. I would say 5, 6 or 7.
“I let them all know that I need to rest and that when my contract expires I will talk about it and start thinking about other projects. And decide my future. For now, I need to take a break and be calm.
