Session of the Executive Board of the Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in Sarajevo on Tuesday analyzed the results so far of the “A” selection in the qualifying matches for the 2020 European Championships.
Particular attention was paid to the analysis of the work of the “A” selection staff, after the coach Robert Prosinecki announced his resignation in the future after the match with the Armenian national team.
As the resignation of the selectors was not formally submitted in writing, all relevant circumstances in the matter were discussed at the session. Adequate measures have been taken to address the new situation, based on the analysis and opinion of the Technical Committee of the NS / FS BiH, as well as other elements related to professional work.
After analyzing and identifying the possible causes that put our “A” selection in the difficult position of achieving direct placement through qualification at EURO 2020, a discussion was opened in which members of the Executive Board took part.
A framework work plan for the next period has been drawn up with the aim of finding the best solutions in the direction of accomplishing the task, placement of “A” selection for the 2020 European Championship.
Considering the objective situation and the current state of affairs, and taking into account the real circumstances and qualitative arguments, it was concluded that the Executive Board gives full support to selector Robert Prosinecki until the end of the EURO 2020 qualification cycle, as defined in the signed contract.
With certainty, changing the selectors at the moment would not have a positive effect, and our chances of placement through the group stage are still possible, realistic and achievable.
