Singapore head coach Radojko Avramovic confirmed his retirement after his team beat Thailand 3-2 on aggregate in the two-legged ASEAN Football Championship (AFF Suzuki Cup) final.

“Yes it is going to end tonight. I have many happy memories. I must say I was lucky because from 2003 (when he started the job) I had absolutely great support from all the people I was working with. Thanks to all of them. I do not think one man can do all this (by himself). In the end it is the players who have done us all proud and I am very proud that I was their coach,” said Raddy on the website.

Raddy, who took on the head coach job in July 2003, won three ASEAN titles — 2005, 2007, 2012 — during his nine years in the hot seat.

Under Raddy’s charge, the Singapore full national squad won 24 (44.4%), drew 13 (24.1%) and lost 27 (50%) of its competitive matches.
