The All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) has formed a task force to look into the recent controversy that surfaced in the Nepali football sector.

A board meeting of the football-governing body held on Sunday made the decision, informs ANFA President Karma Tsering Sherpa.

The task force led by former footballer Victor Rana, also a former Nepal Army officer, has been given seven days to look into the issue.

Other members include former Nepali international Bidur Bista and Nepal National and International Players Association Vice President Dipak Thapa, according to the association.

On April 27, 10 players of the national team had left the camp after arguments with their coach Abdullah Al Mutairi. The coach has already called in new players to replace them.

The players since then had been meeting high-ranking officials of Nepali sports pleading their case and asking for action against Al Mutairi, who later wrote to ANFA stating he had forgiven the players who left but was not going to take them to the Asian Cup Qualifiers 2023.
