National coach Russell Latapy is scheduled to meet with officials of the T&T Football Federation and its technical committee today to discuss his future with the national team.

It has been speculated that Latapy will be stripped of his post as head coach following this country’s dismal showing at the 2010 Digicel Caribbean Cup in Martinique.

Latapy, it is understood, will consider the option of staying on with the TTFF in another capacity if the terms and conditions are right.

The former national captain is also being owed more than one year’s salary as head coach.

TTFF special adviser Jack Warner will be part of the meeting along with president Oliver Camps, another official likely to support Latapy’s continuing role. Latapy spent much of last month in Portugal and also made a trip to Scotland prior to his return.

The TTFF has reportedly held talks with former Portuguese and Real Madrid coach Carlos Queiroz to take over as head coach and lead this country’s quest for qualification at the 2014 Brazil World Cup.

Meantime, Dutchman Leo Beenhakker, the man who coached T&T to the 2006 World Cup, is also set to be jobless after announcing he will leave his post as technical director of  Feyeenord at the end of the season.
