As a guest from the Asian Cup in 2019, the United Arab Emirates decided to crown the champion very determinedly. With great ambition, they played a "big role" when they decided to invite Alberto Zaccheroni, the head coach of the world, to lead the national team.
In fact, the UAE managed to reach the four most powerful teams. However, in the semifinals, they failed with a 0-4 score against Qatar. This makes fans of the United Arab Emirates really "angry". Not only did the home team lack the final ticket, but it was too hard to beat a "big rival".
One day after the defeat, coach Alberto Zaccheroni decided to withdraw from the UAE coach after 15 months. The French said before the press: "I did the best I tried to give young players the opportunity to play in every game.
In the last 15 months I've done a lot, but the goal of the SAE team is to win the Asian Cup. My contract and the United Arab Emirates football federation will end in the Asian Cup. I will not stay in the team.
Actually, we do not want this scenario to happen. We did well, but the errors in the last match caused the whole team to pay the price. The players tried the best, but football is like that. I am responsible for this failure. I hope the team will play well in the future ".
In the Asian Cup in 2019 people saw many trainers who lost their jobs. Three other coaches have broken up before Albert Zaccheronim: Carlos Queiroz (Iran), Juan Antonio Pizzi (Saudi Arabia), Marcello Lippi (China), Milovan Rajevac (Thailand), Stephen Constantine (India) and Sven-Goran Eriksson (Philippines).
