German Gerd Zeise, 64, the national coach, has been appointed coach of the under-22s by the Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) to ensure continuity between the two squads.
The MFF sacked Kyi Lwin earlier this month.
“Most of the national team have played in the under-22s. Now the tactics will be the same for both teams so there is no difference when players move up,” MFF CEO Phone Zaw Naing said.
"I worked with Gerd Zeise for a long time. His footballing techniques contributed much to the under-18s. Joining the coaching role will benefit all the national teams" said Nyi Nyi Latt, the under-18s coach.
