The Indian FA have asked the former India international to speak on behalf of the Federation and negotiate the German’s exit…

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) president Praful Patel and general secretary Kushal Das have asked Abhishek Yadav, who serves as the COO for the India Under-17 World Cup team, to reach an agreement with coach Nicolai Adam to expedite his exit.

With the Sports Authority of India (SAI) questioning the federation’s logic behind getting rid of the German coach less than an year before the Under-17 World Cup kicks-off in India, the AIFF officials explained to the concerned authorities about the written complaint sent by the Indian players and staff.

As reported by Goal on Wednesday, detesting Nicolai's coaching, the players refused to function under his reign. The AIFF official confirmed that players have also made allegations of physical abuse by Adam and the assistant coach Etibar Ibrahimov.
