Jamie Day will reenter another two-year contract as the head coach of the Bangladesh national football team when his second term agreement ended on Friday (May 15).

The papers work of two-year deal will be done very soon with Jamie Day and the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) after a virtual meeting this week, as the general secretary of the BFF Abu Nayeem Shohag informed the Independent on Saturday. 

But this time the two years contact will start from August 16, 2020 while all their necessary discussions have already completed except formal signing.

“As there is no international competition or any assignment of the national team before August, we proposed Jamie for fresh deal from August with the same terms and conditions, same amount salary with other facilities including four tickets and local hospitalities with food, local transport and accommodations. Jamie agreed with all our proposal,” said Shohag. 

Shohag also said, “In fact, all the negotiations have already completed but we will have videoconference among the Kazi Nabil Ahmed, the chairman of the national management Committee, deputy chairman Tabith Awal, Jamie Day and his agent and me. I am looking forward to completing all the formalities by this week. It’s like a courtesy call and over email we will ink the deal.”

Jamie Day when talking to the Independent about the fresh agreement with BFF said, “It’s not far away but there is still a few issues to discuss.”   

Jamie Day did his job in two terms with May 17, 2018 to May 17, 2019 and second term started from 15 May 2019 and ended on May 15, 2020 while the third term will begin from August 16, 2020.

Under Jamie Day’s guidance Bangladesh played 19 international matches when won eight, lost nine and drew two matches.
