A source within the Football Association revealed the instability of the current council over the departure of Queiroz or not, after failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, after losing yesterday against Senegal by penalty shootout in the return match in the final round of qualifiers.
The source added that there is a division within the council over Queiroz’s fate between agreeing to terminate his contract according to the terms of the contract that require his departure in the event of failure to qualify for the World Cup, or negotiating with him to renew his contract given that he did not have a full opportunity to show all his capabilities with the national team, where he took over the task.
