At the age of 18, Law procured his AIFF D license and went onto be an assistant coach for the West Bengal Santosh Trophy team and was also a youth coach at Mohammedan SC.
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to work as Head Coach of Mohammedan Sporting Club.
It is my sincere hope and desire that I can repay the faith the club has shown in me.Yan Law
