KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 18 (Reuters) - Adnan Hamad will be
rewarded for guiding Jordan to the quarter-finals of last
month's Asian Cup with a new contract, the Jordan Football
Association have said.
Jordan want the 50-year-old to stay on as national coach
through the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
Jordan were the surprise package at the Asian Cup in Qatar,
finishing second behind eventual champions Japan in their group
in only their second appearance in the tournament.
They were beaten 2-1 by Uzbekistan in the last eight.
"We will finalise all the details for the new contract in
the coming days," Hamad, the 2004 Asian coach of the year, told
the Asian Football Confederation.
Hamad led his native Iraq on a fairytale run to the
semi-finals at the 2004 Athens Olympics against the backdrop of
escalating violence in their war-torn country.
