Next football coach to be announced in Oct

New Delhi:

The name of the next coach of the Indian football team is likely to be declared in early October, the game's governing body in the country said today. "The expert committee to deliberate on the issue of the next coach will meet on September 30 and the name of the selected candidate is likely to be announced in the next couple of days," AIFF Vice-President Subrata Dutta said. The committee, comprising P K Banerjee, Chuni Goswami, C R Viswanathan and Derek D'Souza, will go through the applications received for the post. They will make their recommendations to federation president Priyaranjan Dasmunshi who will announce the name of the next national coach within a day or two, Dutta said. The last date for receiving applications has also been extended by a day to September 18, sources in the AIFF said. The expert committee meeting was earlier scheduled for September 27 but was put back by three days as its members needed more time to scrutinize and deliberate on the various candidates, they said. "The letter from the president's office to the committee members has asked them to be present at the meeting on the 30th," Dutta said. One of the reasons for the meeting being pushed back may be that all four members would not have been available on September 27, the sources said. The committee is expected to conduct interviews on September 30 and recommend three short-listed names on the same day out of which the final selection will be made, Dutta said. (PTI)
