New Delhi: Former Mohun Bagan and East Bengal coach Stanley Rozario and current NorthEast United assistant coach Naushad Moosa are among the Indians who have applied for the post of national men’s team head coach, a post that has been vacant since the sacking of Igor Stimac. The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has received a total of 291 applications from across the world. Of these, 100 applicants are UEFA Pro Licence diploma holders while 20 have AFC Pro Licence diplomas. Three have CONMEBOL (South American Football Confederation) licence. Rozario and Moosa are AFC Pro Licence diploma holders.

Antonio Lopez Habas, who helped Mohun Bagan Super Giants win the 2023-24 ISL League Shield, has also applied. “Stanley Rozario and Naushad Moosa are among the Indians who have applied and are AFC Pro License holders. Antonio Habas has also applied,” an AIFF official told PTI on condition of anonymity. It is learned that the names of the shortlisted candidates will be placed before the AIFF Executive Committee meeting on July 20. Before this, a committee led by AIFF vice-president NA Harris will review the applications.

The committee will also include the chairperson and treasurer of the technical, league, competition, finance and development committee. The AIFF has said that the name of the new coach of the men’s team will be known by the end of this month. The AIFF Executive Committee meeting on July 20 will also discuss how the blueprint set for Indian football in 2019 can be fully implemented after the I-League Club Association sent a letter to the federation raising concerns over some key issues. In a letter to the AIFF chief and executive committee members, I-League Club Association president Ranjit Bajaj threatened to take legal action if the AIFF did not implement the Indian football blueprint.
