Earlier this month, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) had formally announced that head coach of the Indian U-17 national team, Nicolai Adam stepped down from his post by mutual consent.

Departing Nicolai Adam wishes U-17 team all the very best

The former Azerbaijan U-19 coach's position was put under threat after the players and several staff members of the team filed a written complaint with the AIFF, expressing displeasure with the coach's methods, and refused to function under him. It did not help that this development came after a disappointing show in the Granatkin memorial youth football championship in Russia last month, where the Indian colts finished a deplorable 16th.

“I am grateful to AIFF for giving me the opportunity to serve as coach of the Indian U-17 National Team. I wish all the bright young talent the very best,” were his final words.
