NorthEast United in ISL 2022-23
The Highlanders had a bitter experience in the recently concluded Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 season. They had a terrible start to the season with a series of winless streaks under former Head Coach Marco Balbul.
In mid-season, the NorthEast management brought in Italian manager Vincenzo Alberto Annese to change the fortune of the club. Although he did make a little impact to alter the performance of the team, he still couldn’t lift them up in the points table. At the end of the season, the team finished last in the table with just 5 points from 20 league games.
