East Bengal in ISL
East Bengal Club, managed by head coach Robbie Fowler, finished ninth in the ISL 2020-21 season. As a result, he was replaced by Manolo Diaz at the start of the 2021-22 season, however, the team did not perform as predicted.
The club sacked him and replaced him with assistant coach Renedy Singh as temporary coach due to the Spaniard’s dismal start to the season. Because Renedy does not have an AFC Pro License, the club hired Mario Rivera as their head coach. They ended last in the table with only one win in 20 games after three different coaches had a negative impact on their results.
The club’s officials have already begun assembling their squad for next season. They are already in advanced talks with Nabi Hussain Khan, Mahitosh Roy, Dip Saha, Suryash Jaiswal, and Aditya Patra. ISL players Mohammed Rakip and Ivan Gonzalez have recently joined the Kolkata Club.
Sheikh Russel Krirachakra of Bangladesh has already developed strategic cooperation with them. They’ve assembled a scouting team comprised of former players to scout talent in the I-League and Santosh Trophy.
The team has already begun conversations with numerous ISL players and well-known coaches for the upcoming season. They’re also about to confirm their investor, which will most likely happen very soon.
