The Portuguese Carlos Queiroz praised the former head of the Egyptian Tripartite Committee, Ahmed Mujahid, while launching a sharp attack on the current federation, accusing him of deliberately misrepresenting his image and destroying his relationship with the Egyptian masses.
Carlos Queiroz took on the task of coaching the Egyptian national team during the era of Ahmed Mujahid, the former head of the Tripartite Committee.
The Portuguese coach left Egypt after failing to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup final after losing to Senegal on penalties.
Queiroz led Egypt in 20 matches, winning 13, losing five and drawing twice.
The Portuguese coach with Egypt reached the final of the African Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021, where he also lost to Senegal on penalties.
Carlos Queiroz said in an exclusive statement to Al Masr: The current football association has deliberately ruined my relationship with the Egyptian fans and distorted my image inside the country, and they use two faces when dealing with me, one in front and one behind my shoulder.
The Portuguese added: “Firstly, I am not a packer. I am a professional coach. I signed a contract with the former president of the Egyptian Football Association, Ahmed Megahed, based on honor and honor. You can communicate with Mujahid and he will tell you that I did not argue at all in his contract and the salary of assistants, but that he dealt with honest people.
He continued: “The tribulations in heaven are changing and now you are dealing with people who know nothing about respect, honor and honesty.”
Queiroz continued: “I can say that I will fight for my rights and the fields of my assistant coaches with all my might to the end, face to face in Cairo, in the International Football Association (FIFA) and on the field. “
The Portuguese concluded his speech with a question to the Al Masr journalist: “If you don’t mind, I have a question for you, can you work with people who are divided in your face and put the light on your shoulders, this is just a question, thank you and this is my answer to your question about my return to coach the Egyptian national team again.”
And the Portuguese coach said in a previous interview with FilGoal.com: “The Egyptian Football Association hasn’t made me an offer yet.”
Carlos Queiroz said: “I have not yet received all my contributions from the Football Association, despite the fact that three months ago I left the Egyptian coaching team.”
