If rumors are true Stephen Constantine is all set to quit the Indian team very soon. He has apparently got an offer in Australia.

Constantine who is on his second stint in India was all set to sign  a contract extension after his 2 year contract ends this month but it is alleged that an offer from Australia may have changed his mind.

Under the tutelage of Stephen Constantine, India was crowned champion of 2016 SAFF Championship. He also managed to take India to 129th in the FIFA Rankings which is the highest for them in a decade. But Constantine was heavily criticized for India’s poor performance in the 2018 FIFA World cup Qualifiers where India finished at bottom of the group and also had to suffer the ignominy of defeat at the hands of minnows Guam.

The AIFF has contacted IFN and denied the news saying that Stephen Constantine is serious about his job and future with the Indian team and is not looking for opportunities.
