Head coach of the senior national football team, Michel Dinzey, reportedly announced his resignation to senior national footballers following the country’s 3-2 victory over Aruba in the CONCACAF Nations League in Curacao on Tuesday.
At least two players, who asked for anonymity, have confirmed that the German-born coach and his assistant, Lenny Hewlett, both announced to the team that they would step down following a friendly encounter against Guatemala in that country on Thursday.
Antigua and Barbuda won three of their six matches in Group C, League B of the Nations League failing to qualify for the 2020 Gold Cup. The team however managed to avoid relegation to League C, a fate suffered by Aruba after they finished at the bottom of the standings without a point.
It is unclear as to whether or not the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association has been informed of the pending resignations.
