AIFF has started the process of finding the replacement for the outgoing U-17 coach Nicolai Adam, by inviting applications on its website.

The new coach will get an eight month contract, till the end of the U-17 World Cup which India will host.

The AIFF had decided to end the contract with Adam following a written complaint by the India under-17 team preparing for the World Cup to be held later this year in India.

Adam was asked by the AIFF to resign when 21 players of the team signed a letter in unison against the behaviour of the coach, who had allegedly used abusive language.

The team is expected to start training in Goa soon under the support staff, and AIFF President Praful Patel has promised that the new coach will be in place by the end of the month.
