Levein vows to fight on as Scottish team coach
LONDON - Agence France-PresseCraig Levein pledged yesterday to tough it out as Scotland coach as pressure on him grew after his side’s 2-0 loss in their World Cup qualifier against Belgium.
The defeat in Brussels on Oct. 17 left Scotland bottom of its qualifying group and with its chances of qualifying for the 2014 finals in Brazil looking bleak.
It means it is the only team still seeking a win in Group A after draws at home to Serbia and Macedonia and a defeat to Wales.
Asked if he will consider his position, Levein said: “Not at all. I’m very proud to be the Scotland national team manager and I want to continue to do so.
He added: “All I can tell you is that I want to remain as the manager, that’s what I want to do.”
