Levein has no intention of resigning as Scotland boss
Wednesday 17 October 2012
Craig Levein will not walk away from the Scotland job despite overseeing a World Cup qualification campaign that is so far winless, the BBC has reported.
Scotland are bottom of Group A after losing 2-0 to Belgium in Brussels thanks to goals from Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke and Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany. The Scots had held out for more than an hour but Benteke and Kompany scored within minutes of each other to condemn Scotland to a second defeat in four group games.
The BBC notes that Levein was already under pressure even before the Belgium defeat after Scotland lost to Wales on Friday. Charlie Adam had put the visitors in front but two goals from Gareth Bale condemned Scotland to defeat, with Wales now a place and a point better off than their British rivals.
Levein has been in charge of Scotland for 12 games but has won just three, with two of those victories coming against the minnows of Lichtenstein. Levein said: “I want to stay on as manager; the rest isn't up to me. I'll continue to do the job to the best of my ability and we'll see what happens.”
