Former Bahraini defender Mohammad Shamlan ultimately quit as Pakistan football team coach last week after his two-year contract expired.
Pakistan Premier Football League champions K-Electric strengthened their line-up ahead of the 2016 AFC Cup play-off qualifiers when they hired two England-based players and a coach of Pakistani origin.
Following a disappointing failure in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers a couple of months back, Pakistan football team also failed to impress in the 2016 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 Championship qualifiers.
Like in the past, Pakistan fell in the first round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers when they were held by Yemen to a goalless draw in their second leg in Manama on March 23.
Pakistan head-coach Mohammed Al Shamlan will not extend his contract with the national team after it expires in July this year.
Shamlan submits elaborate plan for major events in 2015 for the Pakistan national and U23 team.
The News' Alam Zeb Safi brings a hard-hitting interview of Pakistan coach Zaviša Milosavljević on Pakistan's foreign-based players, PFF President Faisal Saleh Hayat, lack of qualified coaches, and Pakistan Premier League's problems.

Pakistan’s star striker Kaleemullah has said that frequent changes in the combination of the national team has inflicted a huge damage on Pakistan football.
