On the other hand, Nathan (Nick Mohammad) has completely lost it after Richmond drew the game. He believes that Ted is a “joke” and doesn’t deserve to be a coach. However, when he learns that everybody loves him, he just walks away in frustration. A few months back we see a football team training and the owner of that team is talking with the coach.

The ending reveals that Nathan has joined West Ham United as their new coach. So, Richmond did see someone leaving, but it was not Sam.

Nathan seems to be in revenge mode and will look to annihilate Richmond when they play against West Ham United in the Premier League. It’ll be interesting to see how Ted and Nathan come face to face in Season 3.
