However I was informed that Nepal is set to play friendly matches with Bangladesh. Hence, I rote a letter to GS (8th of August) regarding such friendly international matches. “After noticing disturbing news reporting in several news portal, I wrote and email, at around 5:30 PM NST, to the GS of ANFA regarding not receiving any such emails and demanded apologies. After few minutes of that I received an email, with apologies, from HoD of international relations of ANFA with letter containing questions.
“I have read news reporting where the journalist have quoted source from ANFA saying that I didn’t answer the questions sent by the GS and instead sent things I wanted them to do. I strongly recent such baseless reporting. I have always provided my full effort in building a stone national team of Nepal and have strong desire to continue until my agreement expires. “However, it seems like fe “sources in ANFA’ are deliberately spreading the fake news to tarnish my image. I will not tolerate such bullying and I am willing to go to any higher authority in FIFA or the AFC in needed.
