The Czech national team, after its victory over Moldova (3:0), which meant a ticket to Euro 2024, was left without a head coach. Yaroslav Shilgavy came to a press conference, where he announced his resignation.
The 62-year-old coach said it became difficult for him to withstand public pressure. He made the decision to resign in advance and even before the game against Moldova he warned federation president Petr Foček that he was leaving.
Jaroslav Shilgavy has coached the Czech national team since 2018. His main success in this post was the quarterfinals of Euro 2020.
“Despite we are happy now after the final whistle as we reached the final EURO tournament, we, as a staff team, decided we will not continue in the Czech national team.”
