The Qatar Football Association (QFA) has announced that national team head coach Felix Sanchez’s contract will not be renewed.
For over five years, the Spaniard has helmed the Qatar senior national team, which has coincided with one of the Al Annabi’s most successful eras.
Coach Felix and the QFA have mutually decided to start a new chapter after his current contract expires on 31 December 2022.
The QFA will decide on the new head coach to lead the next phase of the national team soon.
“Felix has been not only our coach, but also our friend. The football family of Qatar will always be grateful for the success he has brought to Qatari football over the years. Coach Felix will always have a special place with us, and we hope he always thinks of Qatar as his home”.
Mr. Sanchez has expressed a desire to pursue new opportunities, while also showing gratitude for his years at the QFA:
“The past five years with Qatar’s senior national team have been a once in a lifetime opportunity. I can only thank the QFA, Sheikh Hamad the president, and the country’s leaders for their trust and support during a period in which we achieved a lot together. Qatar, its people, and its football will always be in my heart. Now is a good time to let others take on the responsibility of the team and for me to explore new challenges”.
