Wim Koevermans contract not to be renewed
Wim Koevermans, shortly after the defeat to Palestine in the FIFA International Friendly played on Monday at the Kanchenjunga Stadium, Siliguri, announced his departure from the Indian Men's Senior National Football Team head coach post.

The Dutch Coach said, "This was my last match as the Coach of the National Team and I will not be taking up the post of AIFF’s Technical Director for private reasons. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stint and stay in India. It was a nice gesture by the Players."

The contract of Wim Koevermans expires on 31st October 2014.

“When I took charge I was told to change the style of play and there has been a huge improvement on that front. We created chances in every match that we played and played some good Football. But that hasn’t been enough. I never like losing. The boys stayed so much committed on the ground today," he said in reference to India’s match against Palestine. "But it was visible that they had better Players in almost every position. We gave them a very tough game and could have avoided conceding the first and the third goals. But that’s Football."
