EGYPT national team head coach Hector Cuper has said that he is not going to retire after his team was eliminated from the 2018 World Cup losing all their group-stage matches.
Saudi Arabia beat Egypt 2-1 in Volgograd on Monday with both teams exiting the World Cup.
“Retirement? I have a contract until the end of the World Cup, we’ll see what happens next, but I’m not announcing my retirement. We’ve already had two meetings [with the Egyptian Football Association] about a new contract and we are to hold one more [meeting].
“A decision has not been made yet,” Cuper told journalists.”
The 62-year-old was appointed Egypt’s head coach in March 2015 and saw them through to their first World Cup since 1990.
However, Karam Kurdi, a member of the board of directors of the Egyptian Football Association, said that Cuper’s contract would not be extended after the defeat to Saudi Arabia.
