Paatoop.com- Myanmar national futsal team’s head-coach, Reza Kordi, has left his job due to the mass killings of the Rohingya minority in the Asian country.

Kordi was named head-coach of Myanmar’s national futsal team in April of this year.

He announced his resignation on Thursday, in protest of the mass killings of Rohingya Muslims in the country that he was hired by.

Regarding his resignation, Kordi stated, “I can’t work there, because FIFA charter states that religious and political issues and ideologies should be kept out of the sport.”
