FOOTBALL- Defending I-League champions Aizawl FC sacked coach Paulo Meneses and his assistant Izan Andres on Tuesday after the team's poor run this season. Their current loss record is of seven consecutive matches.

The Mizoram based club announced the decision on  its social media accounts.

Meneses, expectedly, is not happy with his sacking and said he tried to do his best with the players at his disposal.

“This is completely unfair. Most of the experienced players had left,” Meneses was quoted as saying by goal.com.

“We had only youth players in our team and most of them did not have prior experience of playing in the I-League. We played the best brand of football. We just failed to put the ball in the net. We lost too many players with injuries. Moreover, our key player H Lalmuankima went on to join FC Goa after he played well with us,” he added.
