Petar Segrt took Tajikistan to the quarter-finals of the AFC Asian Cup 2023.

The Football Federation of Tajikistan has confirmed Petar Segrt’s tenure as head coach of the national men’s team has come to an end. 

Segrt, who assumed the post in March 2022, took Tajikistan to historic highs by qualifying for the AFC Asian Cup for the first time and breaking into the top 100 of the FIFA World Ranking.

Tajikistan’s rise continued in the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023™, where they advanced to the quarter-finals before losing 1-0 to Jordan in the quarter-finals. 

In the charismatic Segrt’s 24 matches in charge,  Tajikistan recorded 11 wins and drew seven matches. They also lifted the 2022 King’s Cup in Thailand and the 2023 Merdeka Cup in Malaysia.

Tajikistan’s Qatar 2023 exploits saw their world ranking rise to a historic-best 99th.

Next up for the Central Asian side are back-to-back matches with Saudi Arabia in Group G of the Preliminary Joint Qualification – Round 2 for the FIFA World Cup 2026 and AFC Asian Cup Saudi Arabia 2027 in March.
