The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) has announced that national team coach Bernd Stange is free to leave his post at the end of his current contract.
Confirmation was made on Thursday after the German tactician has decided to refuse a contract extension, meaning his fate will lie elsewhere when his contract runs out on April 15.
Following this situation, FAS is on the look to search a new man in charge, with the 68-year-old will face two last assignments against Myanmar in a friendly on March 24 and World Cup 2018/Asian Cup 2019 joint qualifiers versus Afghanistan on March 29.
“Like any other organisation, we have in place employment regulations, including contract renewal review processes. We have discussed with Coach Bernd on his future and we will announce this decision in April,” FAS said in a statement.
“Coach Bernd and his technical team are now focused on the National Team’s preparations for the upcoming World Cup 2018/Asian Cup 2019 Qualifying match against Afghanistan.”
Stange took charge of Singapore in 2013, since then, he has led the South-East Asia outfit in 33 international matches, with a 14-4-15 win-draw-loss record.
