Raddy Avramovic a wanted man
Former Singapore national team coach Radojko 'Raddy' Avramovic is a highly sought after man in Southeast Asia going by recent reports.
The three-time AFF Championships winning coach was confirmed by Goal Singapore on Monday, to be high on the shortlist of candidates to be the next Head Coach of the Philippines national team.
Now, another Southeast Asian nation in search of a new national team coach have also made a move on the unattached Avramovic.
Myanmar who parted ways with Korean coach Park Sung Hwa following their disappointing exit at the Group Stages of the SEA Games, have been in search of a new Head Coach to oversee their senior team as well as the Under-23 side.
Speaking exclusively to Goal, a Myanmar FA spokesperson confirmed that Avramovic is under consideration for the hot seat but a decision has yet to be made.
"Now we have not made a final decision for it (role of Head Coach of National Team)," the spokesperson told Goal.
"All are under processing and it's not true that we have signed Raddy Avramovic. But he is one of the candidates."
64-year-old Avramovic has been unattached since his exit from the Lions role following the successful 2012 AFF Championship. He has, however, been recently sighted in Singapore attending matches and had previously been linked with a technical director role with the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) as well.
Apart from Philippines and Myanmar, Malaysia are the other Southeast Asian nation in search of a new national team coach. Vietnam most recently rebuffed Head Coach Hoang Van Phuc's resignation while Thailand appointed Kiatisuk Senamuang on a full-time basis after their Gold medal win at the 2013 SEA Games.
