According to a source close to the coach, contacted by Angop, the former national coach and the FAF management have not reached an agreement, as the qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is approaching, in which the country will face Gambia on 2 September.
Last June, at the service of the Palancas Negras (Sable Antelopes) in CAN2019, held in Egypt, the team, under Vasilevic's guidance, was eliminated in the first phase after ties with Tunisia and Mauritania and defeat with Mali.
Vasiljevic is the thirtieth coach to take charge of the Palancas Negras, having replaced the Brazilian Beto Bianchi.
Among the national coaches stands out Oliveira Gonçalves, who qualified Angola for the first time in a final tournament of a world championship, in Germany, in 2006, and competed in 2008 in CAN Ghana.
Lito Vidigal, a finalist defeated at the 2011 CHAN in Sudan, is another reference among the coaches who have already managed the senior males National Football Squad, also dubbed the Palancas Negras.
