Igor Stimac Extension: India men’s senior national team manager Igor Stimac has signed an extension to his contract. The extension will keep him in charge until the end of the AFC Asian Cup 2023. The decision was made last month and was ratified by the executive committee. The biggest clause is that only if Sunil Chhetri & Co make it to the quarter-finals, his tenure will be termed successful. Anything below that, the ax will fall on him.
