Luis Norton de Matos who was manager of India U-17 World Cup team has written a post on his instagram handle which suggests that he has left Indian Arrows. Matos took over India U-17 during March 2017 after Nicolai Adam was sacked due to some allegations of abuse. He managed India U-17, India U-19 and Indian arrows during his tutelage.
But accoeding to our souces Matos isn’t Leaving but is rather taking time off for knee surgery. He can be expected to comeback if AIFF wants him.

I want to thank everyone who has been with me in all this year, U17 World Cup, U19 AFC and I League( Indian Arrows): players, technical staff, AIFF and the incredible Indian supporters of this team. THANK YOU
