Two scenarios for discussion
There are two scenarios before the National Teams Committee, the first is to dispense with the technical staff led by coach Marvik, and to use one of the coaches working in the local league, whether citizens or foreigners, who is familiar with the players and qualifying competitions to save what can be saved, and the strongest candidate for that task is Sharjah coach Abdulaziz Al-Anbari, in If Sharjah Club agrees, the task of the new coach with the national team will be difficult because he is on the verge of important matches in the World Cup qualifiers, as he is scheduled to meet South Korea on November 11 in Seoul, and Lebanon on the 16th of the same month, in Sidon, Lebanon, and it is one of the difficult and fateful matches.
