Marco Paqueta announced that he may resign as coach of the Libyan National Football Team. Paqueta made his announcement via his Twitter account from his home in Brazil.
The news was published by Reuters Africa service as rebels penetrated the center square of Tripoli. Paqueta gave as his reason the situation in Libya and the difficulty of preparing the nation for the African Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
Paqueta talked about the difficulties in preparing Libya for the qualifiers with the team having to travel to Tunisia for its matches. Paqueta admitted that he would fly from Brazil (where he has been since March 2011) to Tunisia to meet with the players.
Paqueta has been coach of the Libyan National Football team since June 2010 under a four year contract. The contract itself appears to be in doubt.
It appears that Libya's match against Mozambique on September 3, 2011 is in doubt as well. It remains to be seen what will transpire for the Libyan Football team in the days, weeks, and months to come.
