AIFF offers contract extension to Indian national team head coach Stephen Constantine
Constantine had led India to the top 100s in the FIFA rankings for the first time in two decades.
The AIFF Technical Committee chaired by Mr. Shyam Thapa held today (February 07, 2018) in Mumbai, unanimously agreed to offer an extension of contract to Stephen Constantine based on his performance.
The members felt that the Indian Senior National Men's team met the dual strategic objectives of AIFF by qualifying for the AFC Asian Cup 2019 as well as by consistently achieving a top 15 FIFA ranking amongst Asian countries in the recent past. Accordingly, there was no reason for the AIFF not to offer a contract to Stephen.
The recommendation of the Technical Committee as above shall be forwarded to the AIFF Executive Committee for their final approval.
