The poor results at the head of his selection will have got the better of the former Sochaux and Toulouse player.
Faruk Hadzibegic has been removed from his position as coach of Bosnia and Herzegovina, due to the poor results recorded during the qualifications for Euro-2024, announced his Federation on Friday. The last defeat against Luxembourg 2-0 on Tuesday at home will have sealed the fate of the former player of Betis Sevilla, FC Sochaux and Toulouse, aged 65. “The end of our cooperation has been accepted by both parties“, writes the Federation in a press release.
The former captain of Yugoslavia was appointed in January for the second time at the head of the national team. His appointment should have allowed the team to qualify for the first Euro football in its history. Bosnia and Herzegovina are in qualifying group J along with Portugal, Iceland, Slovakia, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg.
The team is fourth, four points behind Luxembourg (3rd) after four matches (1 win against Iceland 3-0 and 3 losses, in Slovakia 2-0, in Portugal 3-0 and against Luxembourg 2-0 at home ). Since its independence in 1992, Bosnia and Herzegovina has only qualified for one major tournament, the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
