Uzbekistan Football Association issued a bulletin announcing the end of Coopers class. It thanked Cooper for his contribution during his tenure and wished him every success in the future. Cooper led the national team in 17 matches during his more than one year of coaching, with 7 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses.
Cooper, 64 years old, is a famous Argentine coach who has coached the top European teams such as Inter Milan and Valencia in the past. Cooper was at odds with Ronaldo, the teams top player, when Inter coached, and then Inter President Moratti chose to support Cooper. So far, Ronaldo still has a grudge for Cooper. During last years World Cup, Ronaldo publicly stated that Cooper was the worst manager in his career.
Cooper had previously coached the Egyptian national team and won the World Cup ticket 28 years later. However, in the 2018 Russian World Cup, Egypts national team with Salah lost three times in a row and became the first team to be eliminated. The Egyptian Football Association announced Coopers dismissal before the end of the World Cup.
In August last year, Uzbekistan invited Cooper to coach and the two sides signed a four-year contract. Cooper led the team to the Asian Cup earlier this year, winning 2-1 in the group tournament but losing 2-4 in the penalty shootout in the eighth finals to Australia. It is worth mentioning that Cooper also led the team to participate in the China Cup in March this year and beat the host Chinese mens football team 1-0 in three or four competitions.
Uzbekistan lost 2-0 away to the weaker Palestinians in the first round of the World Cup Asian Qualifying Championship on September 5, which made Uzbekistan Football Association and fans unacceptable and finally decided to let Cooper go. After being fired for two consecutive years and having finished classes with the Egyptian national team and the Uzbekistan national team, Coopers coaching career has been in a difficult period.
