Houghton quits as Indian football coach

May 04, 2010 11:00 AM IST Football Football

New Delhi: Indian football has plunged into a crisis after national coach Bob Houghton resigned, apparently upset with the workings of the All India Football Federation.

Houghton, who is on holiday in South Africa, has confirmed to agencies that he has put in his papers via an email sent on Monday. But the AIFF continues to deny this with president Praful Patel saying that Houghton will continue.
"Bob had not resigned. As of today, he is our coach. There is a lot of speculation going on. I assure you, the coach has not resigned," said Patel.

Houghton's resignation comes just as the Indian team gets ready to prepare for the Asia Cup. He reportedly had a falling out with AIFF secretary general Alberto Colaco after Colaco went looking for a replacement. That move angered Houghton and he quit giving a three months notice period.

India have been drawn with Australia, South Korea and Bahrain at the Asia Cup for which they have qualified after 24 years.
