    Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya football team coach, Radhi Shenaishil, described on Wednesday, the decision of Dick Advocaat, to resign the national team coach, as logical, pointing out that Zeljko Petrovic is the best option now to coach the team in the coming period.

     “The task for which the coach contracted is to lead the national team in the World Cup qualifiers, and since the team's chances of reaching the World Cup have become weak, so the coach decided to resign, and this is logical," Shnaishel said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency (INA).
    He added, "Advocaat agreed to coach the team, in search of results, and his focus was not on the financial aspects, and I respect his decision, as he came for a specific objective and this objective was not achieved."

    Shenaishil also affirmed that the Assistant coach Petrovic is the best option to coach the national team in the coming period to participate in the Arab Cup, as he has sufficient information about all the players through his direct contact with them."

    It’s to be mentioned that the Dutch coach Dick Advocaat apologized on Tuesday, for coaching the national team for reasons he described as family-related.
