Oct 26, 2015 03:27:43 PM - Nepal U16 Coach Upendra Man Singh: My Boy Has Been Cheating Us Since He Joined ANFA Academy As U12 Player!!

Nepal U-16 Coach Upendra Man Singh said he was disappointed to know the news of overage player in his team.

Asian football Confederation(AFC) has disqualified Nepal National U-16 Team from AFC U-16 Championship for fielding an overage player in all three matches of AFC U-16 Championsip 2016 India Qualifiers held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan last month.

The team had qualified for the final round of of AFC U-16 Championship 2016 India as one of the best runners up.

Coach Upendra Man Singh said that they had done MRI of nine players and they took them to the tournament after Team Doctor Raju Dangol said MRI reports were okay.

Speaking with, coach Singh said, "We did MRI of 9 players before going to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for the qualifiers. Dr. Raju Dangol said MRI reports are fine. That's why we took them."

When asked coach Singh if he knew about the player's age, Singh replied, "It is very difficult to do selection in age group in Nepal. All the players bring birth certificate during selection. We can not say them you are overage because they have certificate with them.  If we ask them to do MRI, they cannot afford it. All are under 16 age in passport. It's a big problem."

The coach said that they were cheated by the player.

"We all need to be very much careful during underage selection. Boys were grown up in Anfa Academy since they were U-12. He has been cheating all the coaches, who selected him, from the day he joined ANFA Academy as U12 player. We did everything for the team. We are really disappointed with it."

AFC had done MRI of three Nepal U-16 players; Goalie Arpan Karki, Skipper Manish Karki and Forward Rezen Subba, in Kyrgyzstan and Skipper Manish Karki was  found overage.
