The second-in-command tactician spent four years with the lions.
Delhi Dynamos and their assistant coach Shakti Chauhan has parted ways with the club after the two parties came to a mutual agreement on the decision, thus bringing an end to a 4-year long relationship.
Chauhan decided to look for a new challenge and the club wished him the best for his future endeavours.
When asked about it, Chauhan said, “All is well between me & DDFC. The only reason I wanted to leave was to upgrade myself as a coach. I am currently holding AFC A Licence & so I decided to take a break this year to complete my Pro-Licence.”
“I will be prepared for the next year & if there is a merger then I can see a good chance to lead some team with the four years of ISL experience along with my Pro qualification. I am thankful to DDFC for giving me the opportunity to work & learn from top coaches & players throughout this amazing four season,” he added.
The former TFA coach was instrumental in guiding the club to back-to-back semi-final finishes in season 2 and season 3 and his tactical acumen was well respected in the Dynamos camp.
Shakti Chauhan has been instrumental in his every job down his career, let alone his stint in the National Capital club. He has worked with the likes of Roberto Carlos, Del Piero, Zambrotta and many more during his stay there.
“Shakti’s knowledge of the Indian players was vital for us over these years. He has been a stable and consistent force from the very beginning and his efforts cannot go unnoticed. We would like to wish him the best for his future,” Delhi Dynamos Director Rohan Sharma said.
The club is moving swiftly in appointing a successor as they have already en route in their preparations for the upcoming campaign.
“DDFC will always have a special place in my heart,” said Chauhan before signing out.
