Igor Stimac appointed as Indian football team coach

All India Football Federation (AIFF) has appointed former Croatian footballer Igor Stimac as the coach of the Indian football team. He was appointed for a two-year term. The national team has been without a coach since the departure of Stephen Constantine in January, following the creditable show at the AFC Asian Cup.

The appointment was made by the AIFF’s executive committee.

The 51-year-old Stimac, who was part of Croatia’s 1998 World Cup squad that finished third in France, comes with an experience of over 18 years in coaching, structuring, and developing football and players back home, and internationally.

As a coach, Stimac’s major achievement was guiding Croatia to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
His last assignment was with Al-Shahania Club in Qatar.
