Spanish coach Oscar Bruzon for the time being will only be in charge of guiding the Bangladesh football team in the upcoming Saff Championship, confirmed Bangladesh Football Federation vice president Kazi Nabil Ahmed.

Bashundhara Kings manager Bruzon was recently appointed as head coach of the Bangladesh team on an interim basis, replacing Englishman Jamie Day, who was given a two-month leave by the BFF.

According to media reports, Bruzon will also be in charge when Bangladesh take part in the AFC U-23 Asian Cup Qualifiers, slated for October 22-30, and the four-nation tournament in Sri Lanka in November.

However, following a meeting with Bruzon at the residence of BFF president Kazi Salahuddin Tuesday, Nabil denied those reports, saying their agreement has been made keeping only the Saff Championship in mind.

Nabil, also the chairman of the national team committee, told Bangla Tribune, "The thing about Bruzon working long-term (with Bangladesh), it is not right. It is being reported wrongly. We only talked about Saff. He will only be in charge for Saff. We did not talk about the next two tournaments at all. We are only thinking about Saff, and will think about those issues later.

"We talked about how we can go forward from here. He will work. Who will be in the coaching staff? What are his plans? We talked about this. He shared the staff's requests. We will consider those and take a decision."

Bangladesh Wednesday announced a 26-member squad for the Saff Championship, scheduled to be held from October 1-16 in Maldives.
