The AIFF Technical Committee chaired by Shyam Thapa held today, February 7, 2018, in Mumbai, unanimously agreed to offer an extension of contract to Indian national team coach Stephen Constantine based on his performance till the end of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in the UAE.

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.
