Former footballer Iqbal named new Bangladesh manager

Former national footballer Iqbal Hossain made as the new manager for Bangladesh team for Nepal Tri-Nation Tournament, scheduled to be held March 23-29 at Dashrath Stadium in Kathmandu, said Bangladesh Football Federation in a press release on Sunday.

Iqbal will take possession of the previous team manager Amer Khan, who was temporarily assigned during Bangladesh’s return-leg against Qatar in their joint qualifiers of the FIFA World Cup 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023 last December.     

BFF executive committee member and former footballer Amer is also playing the role of the team manager of Bangladesh Premier League club Brothers Union.

The BPL club are currently under the scanner of BFF Fixed Match Detection Committee as they were allegedly involved in match-fixing and online betting during the BPL first phase.
