Domanski to decide whether to stay with China
Adjust font size:

Marika Domanski-Lyfors will decide later this week whether to remain as the head coach of the Chinese National Women's football team, the Beijing Morning News reports.


The Chinese Football Association has expressed a strong desire to keep Domanski with the team, although she failed to take China to the semifinal of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, which China hosted.


However, the two sides failed to reach an agreement on a contract extension before the Swede left on vacation in late September.


Domanski is happy to remain with the team but must consult her family first, she told the newspaper.


She also defended herself against early reports that a disagreement over the firing of a group of Chinese coaches hampered the contract negotiations. Domanski said she appreciated the help of the Chinese assistants but worried their poor English would complicate communications.
