(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Hamad al Azzani, former Oman senior team coach and currently in charge of Al Nahda Club, has emerged as the front runner to become the coach of the national U22 side.

According to sources in the Oman Football Association (OFA), Azzani, who has also coached the Olympic team in the past, is the leading contender, with OFA chief Sayyid Khalid al Busaidy announcing recently that an Omani would be picked to replace Philippe Burle.

The Frenchman's two-year contract, which was due to expire in April, is not going to be renewed.

The Oman U22 team had a forgettable campaign at the recent AFC U22 Championship in Muscat.

It failed to get past the group stage, which eventually compelled the OFA to part ways with Burle.

Sayyid Khalid said at a press meet earlier this week, ''After careful evaluation, we decided not to renew our contract with Burle. We will hire an Omani coach. A decision on this matter will be made in the coming weeks.''

Another name in the fray is that of Talib Hilal, national beach football team coach.

Sources said the OFA wants to pick an Omani coach who holds an A licence under the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). Currently, there are 12 Omani coaches who hold A licences.

In the past, Azzani has served as an assistant to former senior national coach Claude Le Roy and has handled the Oman team on an interim basis on three occasions.
