“The assistant coaches find it very difficult to communicate with the rest of the local coaching staff, which consists of Radhi Shenishil as coach, Qusai Munir as second assistant, Abdul Amir Naji as analyst, and Ismail Salim as fitness coach. The same applies to the players and the difficulty of directing them, especially since the goalkeeping coach only communicates with goalkeeper Kamil Saad, who currently works as a translator between the coach, players, and goalkeepers to convey ideas,” she added.

She added: “The Spanish assistant staff requested that the Iraqi national team’s translator, Mohammed Abdul Hafeez, join as a translator with the Iraqi Olympic team, but coach Radhi Shenaishil refused Abdul Hafeez’s presence. Therefore, the translator problem has continued and has not been resolved yet, as communication has remained difficult for both parties.”

She noted: “The head of the Iraqi Football Association, Adnan Darjal, will meet with Shenishil to address this issue, in order to put in place the possible facilities and procedures to overcome it and go to Paris without any obstacles or anything that could disturb the atmosphere in the Olympic team.”

The Olympic team coach, Radhi Shenaishil, met with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani yesterday, Tuesday, to discuss the team’s needs in the Olympics and provide all possible means to make Iraq’s mission a success, including a private plane and other logistical matters.
