Kathmandu, March 1

Nepal’s national football governing body, the Nepal National Football Association (ANFA), says it has appointed Italian Vincenzo Alberto Annese as the head coach of the Nepal national football team.

A meeting of the executive committee of ANFA held on Wednesday made the decision, according to the association.

Previously, ANFA had guest applications for head coach in an open call and received 168 applications. The Recruitment Committee then shortlisted 20 candidates.

Italian Annese has the UEFA professional license certificate and was the head coach of North East United in the Indian Super League. He also guided Gokulam Kerala FC to two league titles.

The 38-year-old was also the head coach of the Belize national soccer team for one year in 2019. Annese is fluent in Italian, English, Spanish, Russian, and Indonesian.

The position had been vacant since September 2022 following the resignation of Abdullah Al Mutairi after much controversy over his competence in managing the team.
