“After extensive deliberations, the committee recommended Ms. Langam Chaoba Devi as the head coach of the Indian senior women’s national team,” the All India Football Federation (AIFF) said in a statement.

Devi is the only female coach from the north-east region to have an AFC ‘A’ License coaching badge.

The recommendation is as good as an appointment given that the AIFF executive committee will approve it in its next meeting.

The technical committee meet, chaired by Vijayan, was held virtually and was attended by Pinky Bompal Magar, Shabbir Ali, Victor Amalraj, Santosh Singh, and Climax Lawrence.
