Hyderabad, Aug 9 (IANS) The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Saturday fined Tajikistan coach Pulod Kodirov for skipping an official post match press conference after a group stage match against India August 1 in the ongoing Challenge Cup. The AFC Disciplinary Committee slapped a $1000 fine on Pulod for violating the tournament code of conduct.
The committee, after hearing Kodirov, decided to fine him $1000 as per the provision under Article 16 of the Disciplinary Code, said an AFC spokesman. The Tajik has no right to appeal against the decision as the fine imposed is less than US $ 5000.
Defending champions Tajikistan will again face India in Sunday’s final at the Gachibowli Stadium. But heavy rains have made the match doubtful and it could be shifted out of Hyderabad to some other city.
