ANFA appoints KC as head coach


All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) today appointed Dhurba Bahadur KC as the national team head coach for one year.

KC replaced Poland-born American Jack Stefanowski, who was handed over one-year contract for second time last year. ANFA, who has not disclosed the salary of KC, had hired Stefanowski for $4,000 per month apart from transportation and residential facilities. Under Stefanowski, Nepal had reached semi-finals of the 11th SAFF Championship held in Kathmandu last year.

KC, who is also the chief football coach at NOC, will begin his second stint from Friday to prepare the national team for a friendly match against India slated for August 31. The match will be played in India but the venue is yet to be fixed. KC had earlier taken charge of national team in 1998 and had coached Nepal to title triumph of the All India Governor’s Gold Cup in Sikkim.

KC also coached ANFA Academy teams and women’s national team guiding it to two silver medals in 11th SA Games in Dhaka and 2014 SAFF Championship in Pakistan.
