In a historic move taken by the current administration of Sri Lanka Football to appoint high-profile foreign Coaches for the National Teams, Andrew Morrison, a former player of Manchester City UK and Keith Stevens from Australia were appointed as Head Coach and Assistant Coach respectively.
Both Coaches arrived yesterday (15th May) to the country at 5:20 PM by Qatar Airways. They were received by Hiran Rathnayake, Manager Sri Lanka Men’s National Team and Asif Ansar, Head of Competitions on behalf of FFSL, at Bandaranaike International Airport.
Speaking to Sri Lanka Football Media, Andrew Morrison added,
“We are looking to getting started. It’s been a long flight, just need to get checked in and meet the players and the President and then start the ball rolling. Really excited about the opportunity.
We’ve done a lot of research and got a lot of footage to look over in the coming days, but we’ll be prepared when the games come around. There’s been a lot of planning and hard work from our end.”
