DUSHANBE, 28.01.2022 (NIAT Khovar) – Croatian specialist Petr Segrt has been approved as the new head coach of the national football team of Tajikistan.

He will prepare the team for the 2023 Asian Cup qualifying tournament, which will be held from June 8 through June 14 in a centralized format.

The meeting of the Executive Committee of the Football Federation of Tajikistan, which took place yesterday, focused on a number of issues, one of which was the approval of the new head coach of the national football team.

Segrt has a UEFA Pro coaching license.

He was born in Croatia, but grew up in Germany. He played in amateur German clubs, in which he also began his coaching career. In 1996, the young specialist was invited to Bochum by Klaus Topmöller, with whom he had previously crossed paths at Waldhof.

Segrt was a member of the coaching staff of Duisburg and Waldhof, and then independently led the Austrian clubs Leoben, Ried and Wiener Sport-Club. For a long time, the specialist successfully worked with young players, for which he received the nickname “architect.”

In 2006, at the invitation of Topmöller, Segrt moved to Georgia, where he led the youth team. After the departure of his compatriot in two matches, Segrt acted as the head coach of the Georgian national team. After leaving Georgia, Segrt worked with clubs from Indonesia — Bali Devata and PSM Makassar.

The Croatian specialist led the Afghan national team in the 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament.

In 2018, he led the Maldives team, helping them win the 2018 South Asian Football Federation Cup.
