RIO DE JANEIRO, April 27 (Xinhua) — Brazilian coach Rogerio Micale said Saturday that he is in talks with Indian officials about the Asian country’s vacant national team manager’s role.
The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has been searching for a head coach since January following the resignation of Englishman Stephen Constantine.
Micale said he would travel to India in early May for negotiations with the AIFF as well as at least one local top-flight club.
“I’ll go there and wait to see not only about this [the India job] but other opportunities that have opened up for me,” the Lance news portal quoted Micale as saying. “Let’s see if there is an interesting outcome in the coming days.”
Micale, who guided Brazil to the gold medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics, has been out of work since parting ways with Brazilian Serie B club Figueirense last November.
The AIFF has reportedly also short-listed Sam Allardyce, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Raymond Domenech.
