Austria’s national football coach Franco Foda, who has been criticized, has commented on his future as coach of the OFB team.
VIENNA – Austrian national football coach Franco Foda has commented on his future as OFB selection coach.
“We all know how football works, we also know the extreme mood swings in both directions,” he said in an interview with “Kicker”. “But internally everyone knows how we work in the coaching team. Everyone knows what we have done for OFB, and that is why they trust us even after two losses.” The former German international came under pressure on Tuesday evening after a 2:5 in Israel and 0:1 against Scotland. Austria are fourth in Group F with only two wins and one draw from six matches.
Outgoing association president Leo Windner supported Foda after the bankruptcy, but himself is only in office until 17 October. How his successors – Gerhard Miletich or Roland Schmid – will behave is open. “If we reach the playoff games – first place is no longer realistic – my contract will last until March, if we should qualify, maybe even through the Nations League, until the end of the World Cup in Qatar. Everything else can’t happen.” Be impressed by a coach,” Foda said.
