Argentine coach Hector Cuper resigned from the leadership of the Democratic Republic of the Congo after bidding farewell to the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Qatar.
Cuper took over the technical leadership of the Democratic Republic of Congo last May and reached the final stage of the World Cup qualifiers.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo lost to Morocco by four goals to one in the second leg of the final stage of the qualifiers, after a positive tie with one goal each in the first leg.
And the Congolese Lesvolcansnews website revealed that Cooper submitted his resignation and rejected the idea of extending his contract.
The report, according to Argentine journalist Cesar Luis Merlo, indicated that Cooper informed the Congolese Federation officials of his resignation on Wednesday.
The report indicated that the Congolese Minister of Sports supported the extension of Cuper’s contract with the team.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is preparing for the 2023 African Nations Cup qualifiers, and the qualifiers start two months from now.
Merlo, the Argentine journalist, revealed Cuper’s refusal to extend his contract with the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Cooper received a number of offers for his services during the coming period.
Moroccan reports had indicated that Cuper’s name was linked to the Moroccan national team to lead the team in the World Cup, and that was before facing the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the qualifiers.
