El Salvador coach de los Cobos could walk

Carlos de los Cobos has expressed concerns over his continuation at the helm of the Salvadorian national team after running into a few problems while preparing his squad for the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup.

"I would love to reach the World Cup," de los Cobos said in an interview with El Salvador daily La Prensa Grafica. "That would be something very nice for all of us. Unfortunately it is very difficult to work in a professional manner in this country. It is difficult that I continue."

The Mexican coach has a contract with the Salvadorian federation until the end of the final Hexagonal round of CONCACAF 2010 World Cup qualification, at which point he is uncertain if he will continue to guide the Central American team.

"There has to be tolerance to support what is left of my contract and to try and finish the best way possible," added de los Cobos.

The "Selecta" coach was denied access to the Cuscatlán stadium, due to heavy downpours, and with the lack of proper training facilities has been forced to use the gymnasium of the hotel where the team is concentrated.

"It is a shame that we will finish this process and at the end be in the same situation as always," lamented de los Cobos of the limitations of the national team's infrastructure. "All of the national teams could have benefited from a synthetic field but that was never consolidated."

Despite the current setbacks, the Mexican coach remains concentrated in preparing the Selecta for the Gold Cup and second half of the CONCACAF Hexagonal.
