Kathmandu: Indian football team's chief coach Wim Koevermans on Wednesday looked a worried man as he spoke about the side's future, with seven of the current national team players not having any contract with I-League clubs.

"I am really worried with the situation we have in India right now. It's a threat for national team. Two boys from disbanded Arrows (Allwyn George), five from IMG-R (Syed Rahim Nabi, Nirmal Chhetri, Subrata Paul, Gourmangi Singh, Sandesh Jhingan) and one from Mumbai Tigers (N Mohanraj) will be without clubs.

"Now what are these boys supposed to do? Just practice? And how do I react to this situation as a national coach," Koevermans said after his team's 0-2 defeat to Afghanistan in the the SAFF Championship final.
