Last Night’s Talk Shows: Queiroz officially gets the “amicable” boot
Queiroz’s departure dominated the airwaves last night: The departure of Egypt’s national team coach and manager Carlos Queiroz was “very amicable,” Egyptian Football Association (EFA) member Ehab El Komy told Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa (watch, runtime: 9:33). Queiroz has stepped down from his position by “mutual agreement,” the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said yesterday.
Hold up… didn’t Queiroz already leave? The coach was reported to have left his post after the Pharaohs' painful loss to Senegal in the World Cup qualifiers last month, but the EFA had left the door open to his making a comeback, depending on the outcome of the team's appeal to FIFA and CAF over the match.
The EFA is set to vote on Queiroz’s replacement tomorrow, El Komy said, adding that former players Hossam Hassan and Ehab Galal are both in the running. Al Hekaya’s Amr Adib also discussed the news with EFA director Waleed El Attar (watch, runtime: 6:45).
