New Delhi : India U-17 World Cup coach Nicolai Adam is all set to go. The German has agreed to put down his papers after All India Football Federation stood firm against him.

The German was asked to leave or be sacked by AIFF president Praful Patel following serious accusations of physical abuse against him by the young players.

Around 21 players lodged complaint against the coach and alleged that the coach had beaten them up and terrorised them during training sessions.

The AIFF has maintained that the coach has no other option but to quit irrespective of what he wishes.

In February, 2015, Nicolai was appointed by the AIFF to prepare the young Indian players for the upcoming FIFA World cup which is scheduled to be held in India from October 6 to 28 later this year.
