AIFF retains Bann

New Delhi, Oct 16, 2013, PTI: 0:46 IST
Indian football team’s Technical Director Rob Baan, whose two-year contract with the All India Football Federation ends this month, is set to extend his term for another year.

The 70-year-old Dutchman was appointed in October 2011, when he signed a two-year contract and there has been speculation that Baan would be leaving his post at the end of his term.

Baan told PTI from Goa, where he is undergoing a coaching course, that the discussions on his contract extension has been going on with the AIFF and the outcome could be “positive”.
“The discussion on extension of my contract is going on now and it’s not yet finalised. It will be done soon,” he said.

Asked if he was inclined to continue for one more year as Technical Director, Baan said, “It looks the outcome is positive. The formalities are likely to be done in a few days.” The former Netherlands and Australia Technical Director had suffered a stroke in July while conducting a coaching clinic.
