Kathmandu, October 20
Abdullah Al Mutairi, who has repeatedly announced that the recently concluded SAFF Championship would be his last show as the Nepal football coach, is highly likely to return to Nepal, according to officials of the national football governing body.
All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) President Karma Tsering Sherpa has posted a photo of his meeting with Al Mutairi on Wednesday, saying the two discussed ways to strengthen the Nepal football team.
On the other hand, the coach himself attended a virtual meeting hosted by the world football governing body, FIFA, representing Nepal.
ANFA General Secretary Indra Man Tuladhar claims Al Mutairi is on vacation currently. “We are in conversation. His contract expires in March 2021 only,” he says.
If social media posts and reactions are anything to go by, most Nepal football fans still want Abdullah Al Mutairi as the team’s coach.
