NorthEast United in ISL 2022-23

NorthEast United are one of the most struggling teams in ISL 2022-23 with just four points from 15 matches. They are going through a rough phase and the worst-ever in their history. The thrash performance in the league also forced the management to sack their former tactician  Marco Balbul from his position.

Things however, looked to brighten up lightly after the appointment of Vincenzo Alberto Annese to the helm. They achieved their first win of this season against ATK Mohun Bagan. The recent 2-2 draw against FC Goa is a positive sign from the team which is trying to finish this season on a good note. The northeastern club has recently brought in Alex Saji on a loan deal from Hyderabad FC.
