Crucianii appointed Bangladesh national coach

Argentinean Diego Andres Crucianii is the tenth coach of the Bangladesh national team and first from Latin America. The Bangladesh Football Federation announced his one-year apppointment at a press conference held Thursday by BFF president SA Sultan, vice-presidents Sirajul Islam Bachchu Abdur Rahim, Monir Ahmed and Kazi Salauddin, general secretary Anwarul Haq Helal, deputy secretary Manzoor Hossain Malu and joint secretary Ashrafuddin Chunchu.

Cruciani, an associate of legendary Argentine World Cup-winning coach Cesar Luis Menotti, told reporters he wanted to work in Bangladesh his way. "I saw a league match on Wednesday and detected some bad things like lack of coordination, technique and tactics," he said, as quoted by the Financial Express.
