A source from the team – who asked not to be named – told FilGoal.com today, Thursday: “There are several negative things in the league that Queiroz saw and spoke to us about.”
He continued, “Queiroz sees that the Egyptian League does not produce many good players.”
He explained, “For example, he struggled to find a right-back after Akram Tawfik suffered a cruciate ligament injury against Nigeria in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.”
The source added, “There is also a dearth in the hearts of defense, which makes the choices difficult for him.”
He continued, “As for the attackers, Queirush sees that the great reliance of Egyptian clubs on foreign attackers is the cause of a crisis in this position for him and the team in general.”
And the source concluded, “Queiroz always stressed the importance of Egyptian players playing abroad early to gain experience, and thus this would benefit the national team.”
Egypt lost the opportunity to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after defeating Senegal on penalties 3-1 after a 1-1 draw in the two matches.
Queiroz’s contract with Egypt expired automatically after the failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
But according to Jamal Allam, president of the Football Association, he will meet with Queiroz at a later time and then hold a meeting of the Jabaliya board of directors to discuss the fate of the Portuguese coach.
