Weiss rejoining Azkals soon
German coach Michael Weiss is nearing an agreement with the Philippine Football Federation to stay on at the helm of the men’s national team.
Azkals manager Dan Palami yesterday revealed that a deal is in place for Weiss to handle the team anew in the AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers in Manila in March.
Offered six more months to stay with the Azkals, Weiss has been deep in talks the past few days with PFF general secretary Ed Gastanes on the extension of his two-year contract, which expired Wednesday.
“We agreed in principle but there are some small details (that need to be sorted out) and sometimes they make a big difference,” Weiss told the Inquirer over the phone yesterday.
Palami said the deal for Weiss could extend up to next year if he steers the Azkals to the AFC Challenge Cup finals in the Maldives.
Weiss is hopeful that an agreement could be reached within the next few days as he tries to prepare the squad for the Challenge Cup.
