Uruguay: Oscar Tabarez dismissed after fifteen years

Oscar Tabarez is no longer the coach of Uruguay, he who had been in office for fifteen years. This dismissal « does not prevent the recognition of Tabarez’s important contribution to Uruguayan football« , wishes to specify the Federation, which did not communicate on the name of his successor.

« We salute and recognize the fundamental sporting achievements achieved during these 15 years, which have once again placed Uruguay at the top of world football.« , continued the statement. Last Tuesday, Uruguay recorded a fourth consecutive defeat in the South American qualifiers for the World Cup-2022, beaten 3-0 in Bolivia. The Celeste remains on a series of five games without a victory, seeing itself relegated to seventh place, non-qualifying, four days from the end.

Before Bolivia, it had already suffered two heavy humiliating setbacks against Argentina in Buenos Aires (3-0) and Brazil in Manaus (4-1). A black series which will have been fatal to the 74-year-old technician, suffering from Guillain-Barré syndrome and who must move with the help of a cane. scar Tabarez, teacher by profession and former professional player, has also coached many clubs, from Colombia to Spain, via Argentina and Italy.

Under his leadership, and with the help of a golden generation (Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Diego Forlan …), he replaced Uruguay among the great football nations. Dark years have indeed succeeded the two world titles of 1930 and 1950. scar Tabarez took the reins of the selection for the first time between 1988 and 1990, reaching the final of the Copa América 1989 then in the 8th finals of the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

Having regained his chair in 2006, he therefore managed to qualify the selection for all the finals of the World Cup: semi-finalist in 2010 in South Africa, eighth-finalist in 2014 in Brazil, quarter-finalist in 2018 in Russia (eliminated by France). The whole thing embellished with a Copa America in 2011. But the great adventure therefore ended on Friday, in the middle of qualifying badly started for a selection which may be at the end of its tether.
