Colombia have sacked former Bafana Bafana coach Carlos Queiroz.
The decision was made this week, but follows a string of poor results, including Colombia’s worst defeat in 43 years, when they lost 6-1 to Ecuador.
Colombia are currently struggling in 7th spot in the South American World Cup Qualifying round robin group.
“The Colombia Football Federation and the technical director Carlos Queiroz agreed the coach would not continue as head of the Colombian Men’s National Team,” A statement confirmed.
“For the FC, it was an honour to have him for almost two years, in which he gave us his full capacity, knowledge and experience.”
“The contribution that you leave us will serve to continue the development of the projects that are being carried out with all the national teams of our country.”
“We wish Professor Carlos Queiroz and his team the best in their future career plans.”
Queiroz has previously coach countries like Iran and Portugal, and was also Real Madrid coach at one point. He also famously served as assistant to Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, after his stint with South Africa.
