Raddy inches closer to Myanmar hotseat

Singapore's most successful national team coach is set to finalise his return to the region as Myanmar FA confirm contract negotiations are nearing an end
Former Singapore coach Radojko 'Raddy' Avramovic is nearing his surprise move to take on the reins of the Myanmar national team.

Speaking to Goal, a Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) spokesperson confirmed that the 64-year-old was close to completing the move with only some minor details left to finalise the deal.

"MFF have completed their review process for Raddy," he told Goal.

"There are still some facts under consideration but Raddy will take the Myanmar job. MFF will annouce the decision soon."

Meanwhile MFF President U Zaw Zaw also stated that Avramovic was '99 percent ready for Myanmar National Head Coach role'.

"We are in detail consideration over the contract," said Zaw Zaw.

"75 percent is already completed. But we will release an official announcement after the contract signing.

"On February 2, Raddy and I will made the final consideration."

Once appointed, Avramovic will take on the task of guiding Myanmar through the AFF Challenge Cup in Maldives this year, with a spot at the 2015 Asian Cup on the line.

The three-time AFF Championship winning coach was earlier this week revealed by Goal to be in the sights of Myanmar, along with the Philippines who are also in search of a new national team Head Coach. The Azkals however seem to have settled on former USA captain Thomas Dooley.
