Carlos Queiroz has left his head coach job at Colombia after almost two years at the helm of La Tricolor.
After almost two years in charge of the South American nation, the Portuguese tactician has departed.
On Tuesday after the nation’s slow start to the 2022 World Cup qualifying, the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) announced the departure of Queiroz.
Colombia, who have featured at the past two World Cups, have won just one of their opening four qualifiers, collecting four points to sit seventh.
“The Colombian Football Federation and the technical director Carlos Queiroz agreed the coach would not continue as head of the Colombian Men’s National Team,” a statement read.
“For the FCF, it was a pride to have [Quieroz] for almost two years, in which he gave us his full capacity, knowledge, and experience.”
“The contribution that you leave us will serve to continue the development of the projects that are being carried out with all the national teams of our country.”
“We wish Professor Carlos Queiroz and his team the best in their future career plans.”
“As of this date, the Executive Committee of the Colombian Soccer Federation will initiate the process to search for the coach who will occupy, in the immediate future, the position of technical director of the Colombian Senior Men’s National Team.”
