Qatar Basketball Federation (QBF) decided today to dismiss the national team coach Panayiotis due to poor results. The decision was taken during the QBF's meeting headed by Ahmed Al Moftah. The meeting was held in accordance with the precautionary measures set by the Ministry of Public Health for the safety of all.

Secretary of the Federation Ali Al Maliki said in a statement after the meeting that the Cypriot coach did not achieve the desired results throughout his tenure as coach of the Qatari team, adding that the QBF will look for a new coach, especially since the team is participating in the qualifiers for the Asian cup finals, and plays in the fifth group with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Syria.

The new coach will have a difficult task as he will prepare the team for a match in Doha with Syria, before facing Saudi Arabia in November 2020.
