“You know, both of them were qualified for the job but at the end of the day only one was to be appointed. We almost appointed 'Korea' but he quoted a relatively higher amount of salary which we could not easily afford,” he told Goal.

More changes are still expected on the club’s technical bench as hinted by the chairman.
