At the start of the 2005–06 season, Sporting CP were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League by Italian club Udinese, and after being relegated to the UEFA Cup they were also immediately knocked out by Halmstads 4–4 on aggregate after a 2–3 home loss.

From 11 November 2013 to 11 January 2015, Peseiro worked with Al Wahda in the UAE Pro League. 

In October 2015, Egyptian league giants Al Ahly announced his signing.
