Out of this, 100 applicants have UEFA Pro License diplomas against their names. While 20 of the applicants hold AFC Pro License diplomas, three have CONMEBOL licenses.

The AIFF will scrutinise all the applications and shortlist suitable candidates for the coveted job.

The AIFF President, Mr. Kalyan Chaubey said, “We have received an overwhelming response with some of the marquee names having expressed their interest in India.

“As we get ready to write a new chapter in Indian football, it’s crucial for us to have a coach who is committed to the development of Indian football, to understand our culture and help design the national football philosophy.
