Jose Peseiro has been appointed manager of Portuguese side Braga in succession to Paulo Fonseca.

The 56-year-old joins for his second spell in charge having been sacked by Porto last week after they finished third and lost to Braga in the cup final.

Peseira had short spell at Egyptian giants Ahly before leaving to Porto last January.

He will have under his hand Egypt striker Ahmed Hassan "Kouka". 

The 23-year old marksman finished on top of his team's scorers list having scored 10 goals in 23 league games.

Braga finished a distant fourth last season under Fonseca who has taken over at Shakhtar Donetsk.

The much-travelled Peseiro was previously in charge of Braga in the 2012-2013 season when they came fourth.
