Kolkata: Mohammadan Sporting on Monday removed
their Dronacharya awardee coach Syed Nayeemuddin after the
club`s shock exit from Federation Cup qualifiers.

Top officials of the Mohammadan Sporting including
union Minister of State for Tourism Sultan Ahmed is currently
in a meeting to decide on their next coach.

"It`s best to part way with the coach, following our
pathetic shows," a club official said.

"Players were getting frustrated with his methods. He
still lives in the past and swears by it. He has no idea about
modern coaching methods. Worse, he is not ready to upgrade
himself," he said.

Mohammadan Sporting have been relegated to the second
division in the I-League and failed to make the cut for the
Federation cup losing to Oil India 3-1 in the qualifiers in
Silchar on September 15.

Earlier, Mohammadan Sporting were humiliated 0-5 by East
Bengal in a Calcutta Football League Premier Division match.
