Jose Antonio Camacho, who was recently fired as coach of the Chinese men's national soccer team, announced on Friday that negotiations with the Chinese Football Association have collapsed and that he may appeal to FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
CFA decided to end its contract with Camacho last month after a string of high-profile losses under his leadership, including a 5-1 defeat to Thailand.
"CFA informed Camacho on June 21 that they will end the contract with him and his coaching team … and CFA stated they will obey the contract items,” said a statement by Camacho. "Our part made every attempts to negotiate with CFA, which failed to meet the commitment completely. We feel sorry for the breakdown of the negotiation and we will start to appeal to FIFA and CAS according to the contract."
The statement didn't detail the cause for or the specifics about the disagreement.
