DOHA - Qatar have sacked coach Bruno Metsu
after he failed to guide the hosts past the quarter-finals of
last month's Asian Cup.
Qatar, who have never made it to the semi-finals of the
tournament, were beaten 3-2 in the last eight by eventual
winners Japan after a last minute winner from Masahiko Inoha.
"I would like to thank Bruno for the work he has done since
taking on the position last summer. His commitment to the job
could not be questioned and I wish him the best for the future,"
Qatar Football Association president Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa
bin Ahmed al-Thani told the team's website.
"The recruitment process for the new coach begins now and we
will do everything to get the right man for the job."
All eyes have been on the tiny Gulf nation since they were
awarded the rights to host the 2022 World Cup finals by world
governing body FIFA in December.
