Claim that Indian coach examination was corrupted

Syed Rashim, a successful local coach in India for the last five years and a technical official of the All Manipur Football Association, has accused the AMFA of running a corrupt coaching program. Of the 22 coaches who participated in the AFC `C` licence holder course under Asian Football Confederation and All India Football Federation guidlines at Khuman Lampak sports complex, 17 passed, three in pro and two failed. Rashim did not pass and has since alleged that the examination was not conducted in the right way and that there was corruption.

He told The Imphal Free Press that "S Ekendra who was the director technical AMFA AFC 'A' licence holder, conducted the course. At the end of the course, Ekendra conducted a examination and in this examination the questions were asked from lesson No.2 whereas only lesson No. 1 was taught during the course. As a result of which none of candidates could answer the full paper while some answered nothing at all. Rashim alleged that some candidates who had performed poorly in the written exam as also in the practicals passed the course."
