Turkey Football Federation Severs Coach Stefan Kuntz’s Contract


According to the Demiroren News Agency (DHA), Turkey’s football association decided to sever coach Stefan Kuntz’s contract after the German coach lambasted his players during the national team’s friendly loss to Japan last week.

In response to calls for his resignation from supporters following Tuesday’s 4-2 loss to Japan, Kuntz stated that his players needed to put in more effort and that he shouldn’t take full responsibility.

In addition, Kuntz expressed his displeasure that his players were not giving their best effort, saying that his players should respond to criticism on the pitch rather than “in post-match interviews”.

According to DHA, Kuntz’s remarks damaged his relationship with Turkey’s Football Federation (TFF), which told him to separate ways on Sunday. It stated that Kuntz’s contract, which was slated to expire following the Euro 2024 competition, would be void.

Kuntz led the German Under-21 team to two consecutive European Championships in 2017 and 2021. He was hired in September 2021, and since taking over, he has lost five, drawn three, and won 12 of his 20 games.

The TFF didn’t publish a formal statement on the subject over the weekend. The federation would make the announcement on Tuesday, according to DHA.

Kenan Kocak, Kuntz’s assistant, may serve as the team’s manager for the Oct. 12 Euro 2024 qualifier against Croatia, as per DHA. According to the report, the TFF could hire former Germany manager Joachim Loew or rehire former coach Abdullah Avci.
