Peruvian Soccer Federation (FPF) President Edwin Oviedo affirmed the board will do its best to convince Argentina-born Ricardo Gareca to remain as the team coach thru the entire 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar process.
"We, as the Peruvian Soccer Federation, will do our best to retain Ricardo Gareca
," he told Latina TV channel.
In addition, Oviedo noted the love that Gareca feels for the team, as well as for his work "is helping a lot since he takes into account many factors, such as being comfortable working in Peru."
"I think he (Gareca) has not taken a vacation after all this time. He will take a few days off, and we must respect that, but I have confidence, as head of the Federation, that we will do everything possible to retain him for the next four years," he added.
Regarding the presence of FPF Sports Manager Juan Carlos Oblitas in the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Oviedo stated his contract —as well as those of the rest of technical team members— "will be renewed because they did an outstanding job."
