Gurgaon, April 26 (IANS) After guiding Churchill Brothers to their maiden I-league title, their Serbian coach Zoran Djordjevic may be on his way out.
Zoran, who became the first overseas coach to win the I-League title, didn’t sound confident when asked whether he will get another term with the Goan club. Even after a week of winning the I-league title, the club management is yet to give a fresh contract to the coach.

Club sources told IANS, the coach hasn’t done anything special with the team and it were the players, who won Churchill its first major title.

“It doesn’t matter whether I stay or not. But I will go down in the history book in Indian football with Churchill Brothers,” Zoran told IANS after being awarded the best coach of the I-League here Sunday.

Churchill lost 1-2 to Mohun Bagan in one-off Super Cup tie to end the season at the Devilal Stadium here Sunday.

Churchill Bothers’s president Joaquim Alemao also dodged the question on Zoran’s stay. “Lets see,” was what Alemao had to say.

Zoran took over in September when Churchill was going through a bad phase. They had surrendered the Durand Cup title to Mahindra United and coach Emeka Ezuego was sacked after the Nigerian had a fall out with the players.
