Kazi Salahuddin, the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) president, claimed that the success in women's football is largely due to the effort of technical director Paul Smalley. He also said that while Golam Rabbani Choton's sudden departure is a setback, the long-serving head coach is not irreplaceable.
BFF must answer for alleged financial irregularities, organisational failures

The Super Cup, the popular biennial football tournament in Bangladesh which only saw three editions since its inauguration in 2009, is set to make a comeback after 10 years as the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) officials informed that the cash-rich competition is scheduled to take place next year.
The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) president Kazi Salahuddin yesterday urged Lee Jang-Keun, ambassador of the Korean Embassy in Bangladesh, to make room for the Bangladesh women’s football team to play matches in Korea.
