Gustavo Matosas has stepped down as manager of the Costa Rica national team after less than a year in the job, blaming the frequent down times between games that made him feel unproductive.
“I realized that in the national side I feel unproductive even though I kill myself watching videos,” Matosas said at a press conference on Wednesday.
“It’s not what I like to be doing.”
An Argentine national who played for Uruguay, Matosas was in charge for just eight games but will stay on for Friday’s friendly against Uruguay in the Costa Rican capital.
Mexican and Costa Rican media are reporting that Matosas will soon take charge of Liga MX side Atletico San Luis.
