Raddy Avramovic set to leave after Suzuki Cup

AFF Suzuki Cup will be coach's last assignment

After a nine-year spell that includes two Asean Football Championship titles, Raddy Avramovic's reign as Singapore coach is set to end.

The Straits Times understands that - regardless of the team's performance at November's AFF Suzuki Cup - the Serb's contract will not be renewed.

This is believed to be a mutual decision, with Avramovic, whose contract ends next February, having told close friends and colleagues that he wants to explore fresh coaching opportunities in the Middle East and China. He is understood to have had a handful of approaches to manage clubs in these countries.

Sources say the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) has already begun the search for a replacement - ahead of the 2015 Asian Cup qualifying campaign in February.
