FilGoal | News | After being denied the World Cup, Halilhodzic: I’m thinking of ending my career

Vahid Halilhodzic is considering ending his coaching career following his departure from Morocco.

The Moroccan Federation terminated its contract with Halilhodzic about 3 months before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Moroccan Walid Rekraki replaced Khalilhodzic to lead his country in the World Cup in Qatar.

Halilhodzic said via the French “Monte Carlo”: “This decision has been a bit difficult, I am even thinking about ending my career, I had a lot of successes and failures, I think I say thank you to football.”

And about receiving a number of offers after his departure from Morocco, he explained, “I will see later, I want to rest at the moment and study the matter well.”

Halilhodzic has led the Moroccan national team since August 2019 in 30 matches, winning 20, drawing 7 and losing 3 matches.

The 70-year-old succeeded in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, but was bid farewell to the African Nations Cup by Egypt in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Morocco booked its place in the 2022 World Cup by defeating DR Congo 5-2 on aggregate for the sixth time in its history.

Bosnian Vahid Halilhodzic was banned from participating in the World Cup for the third time with a team he led to qualifying during the World Cup qualifiers.

Halilhodzic’s story with promotion to the World Cup

Vahid Halilhodzic headed the technical leadership of 4 teams, all of whom qualified for the World Cup, but the strange thing is that he left two before competing in the competition.

Halilhodzic had promoted Côte d’Ivoire to the 2010 World Cup, but he left the team before the start of the competition.

While he ascended the Algerian national team to the 2014 World Cup, and led them to a historic achievement after they reached the round of 16 and then exited later against Germany.

As for Japan, he took them to the 2018 World Cup, but he was sacked before the World Cup, and the matter was repeated for the third time after his departure from Morocco.
