KATHMANDU — Nepal national football teams coach Patrick Aussems announced on Saturday that he would not renew his contract with the All Nepal Football Association.
His decision came after the Nepali national team delivered a dreary performance at the eighth SAFF Championship being held in India.
Nepal had lost both matches in the tournament and crashed out of the group stage for the first time since 2009.
Aussems wrote in his Twitter page that he made the decision as ANFA did not respond to a plan he had prepared for the development of Nepali football.
In his tweets, Aussems added that Nepali players could not perform well for want of professionalism, vision for the future and development plans on part of the governing body, despite their skills.
“What a pity for these young talented players,” he wrote.
I have given to ANFA’s board my plans to develop Nepali football but not any feed-back !!! So I will not renew my contract …
