Turkish federation says Terim to stay as coach
Turkey coach Fatih Terim will remain in his post and lead the country to the 2010 World Cup, the Turkish Football Federation said on Friday.

After Turkey lost 3-2 to Germany in Wednesday's Euro 2008 semi-final, Terim said he would probably step down and media reports linked him with a return to Italy.

The Federation said Turkey was not seeking a new coach.

"National team technical director Fatih Terim is in his post and he will be at the head of our national team in the 2010 World Cup finals," the federation said in a statement in Turkish on its website (www.tff.org).
