Yoon Bit-garam leaves Ulsan Hyundai for Jeju United
Ulsan: Ulsan Hyundai FC have announced 2020 AFC Champions League-winning midfielder Yoon Bit-garam has left the club to return to Jeju United .

New Delhi: India, under Swedish Thomas Dennerby, enter the AFC Women's Asian Cup India 2022 aiming to rebuild their team’s reputation on the continental scene. The hosts were a competitive side in the early editions of the Asian finals, notably finishing as runners-up in 1979 and 1983.
But the decades since have brought little to celebrate for the Blue Tigresses. Indeed, India have featured in just five of the past 14 editions, never progressing beyond the group stage.
Competing as hosts of the upcoming Women's Asian Cup, however, provides India with the chance to rewrite a few of those statistics, although Dennerby - who took over in August - is aware of how tough his task is.
The former Sweden and Nigeria coach, who has been managing India’s U-17 side over the past two years, sat down with FIFA.com to share his vision for India football, the current squad and the trends in modern-day women’s football.
