The Qatar Football Association has announced that Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz's tenure as head coach of the Qatar national team has ended amicably by mutual agreement between the two parties.

"The QFA expresses its sincere gratitude to coach Queiroz for his unwavering dedication, leadership and contributions during his tenure as the head coach of the national team," the QFA said in a statement.

"We wish him success in his future endeavours," the statement added.

Queiroz has been replaced by Spanish coach Marques Lopez a month ahead of the AFC Asian Cup in Qatar.

“The coach will be in charge of the Qatar national team at the 2023 Asian Cup, which will be hosted in Qatar next year,” the QFA said while announcing his appointment.
