The Kuwaiti announced through a Facebook post that he was leaving the hot seat nearly after one-and-a-half years.
“After 525 days in the service of Nepalese football, I announce the end of my tenure as coach of the Nepal national team. Thank you to everyone who supported me on this journey that was not without moments of joy, love, sadness and pain. One Team, Jay Nepal (sic).”
Almutairi was sent to Nepal under grant by the Qatar Football Association.
