Former Indian national team coach Stephen Constantine has become the national coach of Sudan as he penned a two year contract hours back.
When congratulated on his appointment, the Englishman confirmed the same to Goal.com through a text message reading, “Thanks. It’s a two year deal.”
Stephen had recently written in his blog stating that he had interests from Africa, Asia and even the US but what would interest him is a platform where he could show his ability.
The former Millwall FC coach was also close to signing a contract with India’s second division club Pune FC last year but the deal fell through as the two parties couldn’t come to an agreement especially on the financial side.
Constantine’s last job was at Malawi where he resigned following the lack of support from the administrators.
Sudan are placed in Group D for the 2010 World Cup qualification and have Mali, Benin and Ghana for company, who are all above them in the FIFA rankings. The African nation is ranked 84th.
