SC East Bengal have announced that head coach Jose Manuel Diaz and assistant Angel Puebla Garcia have mutually agreed to part ways with the club due to personal reasons.
The Red and Gold Brigade who are in their second season in the Hero Indian Super League are yet to win a match in this campaign and sit at the bottom of the table.
“SC East Bengal confirms that Jose Manuel Diaz and his deputy Angel Puebla Garcia have mutually agreed to part ways due to personal reasons,” the club said in a statement,
“Former India captain and SC East Bengal assistant coach Renedy Singh has taken over charge as interim head coach,” the statement further added.
SC East Bengal CEO Col. Shivaji Samaddar said: “We thank Jose and Angel for their contribution and support to the team in the ongoing season. I wish both of them all the best for their future endeavours.”
SC East Bengal have drawn four and lost four matches in the Hero ISL 2021-22 season and produced their best performance of this season in their last match against Hyderabad FC that ended in a 1-1 draw.
The Red and Gold brigade would hope to end their winless streak when they take on tenth-placed Bengaluru FC in their next match on January 4, 2022.
A win in that match could help SC East Bengal leapfrog the Blues in the table and give Renedy Singh a much-needed boost ahead of the remaining matches.
