Addressing a gathering of colleagues and former colleagues and friends at a farewell function at his Tasiriki home last Tuesday night, Carlos repeated his statement on the media that he has decided to terminate his contract with the Vanuatu Football Federation (VFF) because of what he calls "breach" of contract on the part of VFF.
However he maintains that for legal reasons he would not dwell on the issue an further.
Meanwhile Carlos says he would be able to make a few serious statements about his next assignment or contract by next week.
"The time frame I gave VFF for my termination of contract ends this weekend, so I would be able to say more next week", he explains.
Carlos say he will be leaving Vanuatu with his head high, knowing that he has helped put a structure in place, and that he has confidence in those coaches with whom he had worked in the past seven years.
"That is life for people in this kind of job.... today you are in one place, the next time you will be somewhere else... but for me I will always take Vanuatu in my heart wherever I go. My wife is a ni-Vanuatu, our daughter was born here... so no matter what, I know I will always come back to settle here", Carlos says.
It is not yet clear as to which federation would take in the man who no doubt brought Vanuatu Football to new heights, and most importantly winning the attention and approval of the international football family. The Vanuatu youth teams are regarded as some of the best in the region.
Among various achievements, Carlos has led Vanuatu to winning the Bronze in the South Pacific Games in Fiji in 2003.
Fiji had at one stage to sign Carlos in when his first four year contract ended with VFF ended in 2003. With his designed development programmes already being implemented throughout Oceania, Carlos would find not problem in fitting in to any team in the region.
But his only regret is the idea of him having to play against Vanuatu if he remained in the region.
"I have raised these players over the past years you know... I value very much the players and those coaches and people that I have worked with. And that will not change", Carlos says.
Carlos is planning to move on with his wife Betsie and baby daugher Jade.
