Najam Sethi confirms Mickey Arthur’s possible return as Pakistan head coach


Najam Sethi has said that Mickey Arthur will most likely be returning as the head coach of Pakistan men’s cricket team.

Earlier, PCB had announced that the negotiations with former coach Mickey Arthur couldn’t materialize, owing to his long-term contract with Derbyshire.

However, in a press conference on Monday in Lahore, Sethi revealed that he is in direct contact with Arthur and the negotiations are moving in the right direction.

“I had not closed the chapter of Mickey Arthur. I am personally in negotiations with Mickey and we have resolved 90 percent of issues. Hopefully, we will very soon give you the news that Mickey will be joining us,” Sethi said.

“When Mickey comes back, he will make his own team and will tell us how much we need to pay them. We will resolve the rest of the issues in next 1 or 2 days. Mickey will come back,” he added.

Sethi also heaped praise on Arthur’s achievements as a coach and his close association with Pakistan players.

“Arthur has won us the Champions Trophy. He is now a highly regarded coach. No other coach knows Pakistan more than Mickey,” he added.
