The Egyptian Football Association president Ahmed Megahed discussed the possibility of national team head coach Carlos Queiroz’s departure.
Queiroz took charge of the Egyptian national team following the dismissal of former head coach Hossam El-Badry.
Since then, the Portuguese led the Pharaohs in nine games, including friendlies, FIFA World Cup qualifiers, and Arab Cup games, in all of which he remains undefeated as he won seven and tied in two.
However, Queiroz’s main goal with the Egyptian national team is yet to be achieved, as it was previously stated that the main reason he took charge of the team is the FIFA World Cup qualification.
EFA president Ahmed Megahed spoke about that goal, and what happens in case Egypt fails to qualify for the upcoming World Cup.
“Queiroz’s contract with the national team ends by the end of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, if we fail to qualify, the contract is automatically terminated,” Megahed said.
“If it was up to me, I’d offer Queiroz a new contract that ends in 2026, I’ll recommend that to whoever comes after me.
“The main reason Queiroz came to Egypt is to qualify for the World Cup, but with the performance I am seeing right now, I believe we can win the Africa Cup of Nations.”
