It seems that the former coach of the Atlas Lions was too affected after his dismissal by the FRMF on the eve of the World Cup. The Franco-Bosnian is going through difficult times and is seriously considering ending his coaching career.
“This decision from Morocco hurt me. I’m thinking of retiring in a weird way. That’s life. I had ups and downs, but it was too much. I’m thinking of saying thank you in football,” he told Bosnian media. N1. A statement that says a lot about Coach Vahid’s state of mind. He can’t accept being fired on the eve of a World Cup for the third time.
He seems frustrated and perhaps regrets his stubbornness when he presided over the fates of the lair. The Franco-Bosnian technician says, however, that he received many offers after leaving Morocco, but that he does not plan to return to service.
“I had a lot of interesting offers after the decision of the Moroccan Football Federation by teams qualified for the World Cup. Even if the offers are there, I will not accept any commitment, and I will see later” , said Halilhodžić.
As a reminder, this is the third time that he has qualified a selection for the World Cup without accompanying it to the final phase. This was the case in 2010 with Côte d’Ivoire, with Japan in 2018 and with Morocco in 2022.
