The national coach of Rwanda, Carlos Ferrer, reacted to the defeat of the Amavubi against Mozambique (0-2) this weekend, in the CAN 2023 qualifiers. And the Spanish technician assured that he is not afraid of losing his position.
Condemned to win to stay alive in these qualifying phases of CAN 2023, Rwanda will not fulfill its mission. Receiving Mozambique last Sunday, on the fifth day of the qualifiers, the Amavubi lost with a score of 2-0. A defeat which eliminates them from the tournament, even before the final day’s match against Senegal next September.
At a press conference after the match, Carlos Ferrer spoke about this rout of his team, the third for the Rwandans in these qualifiers. And the Spanish technician took the opportunity to discuss his future at the head of Amavubi. While his team’s poor campaign could cost him his place, the 47-year-old coach assures that he is not afraid of being fired.
“ I’m not afraid, I’m a real man, you can like me or not but I’m real, so I know I give 100%. In most things I would have a problem if I didn’t do my job to the best of my ability, on this subject let’s say I would have a problem, but that’s not the problem“, Ferrer said in comments reported by Kigali Today.
The Spaniard, who has been training the Amavubi for a year and two months, continues to say that he will never be a problem for Rwanda and that he is calm in what he does. “ As I’ve been saying for a long time, I won’t be a problem. I am calm in what I am going to do, I am very confident in what we are doing. It’s a difficult course and it’s true because we are changing the style of play, especially in the national team” , he added.
Landed on the Rwandan bench since March 2022, Carlos Ferrer extended his contract for two years with the Amavubi last April. After five days, Rwanda is last in Group L with two points, five points behind Mozambique and eleven behind Senegal, leader.
