Northeast United FC is excited to announce that the club has appointed Naushad Moosa in a triple role as the Indian Assistant Coach, Head Coach of the Reserve Team and as Head of Youth Development on a two-year deal.

Naushad started his coaching journey as a youth coach at Mumbai FC in 2008 and then went on to hold coaching roles at Mumbai FC, Pune FC and Air India. The former Indian international brings with him a wealth of experience having held coaching positions across ISL and I-League teams with both youth and senior squads.

Moosa’s last position was as the Indian Assistant Coach, Reserve Team Head Coach and Head of Academy at Bengaluru FC. During his stint at BFC he also was appointed the interim Head Coach in 2021.

Speaking on his appointment, Moosa said:

I’m excited to take up this opportunity at NorthEast United, as I believe it is a great challenge for me at this stage in my career as a coach. The foundation of many teams in the country are built around players from this region and I am excited about the talent we can find both for NorthEast United and for the Indian Football Team in the future.

Moosa who was also the Academy Manager of RF Young Champs has been instrumental in building and managing youth structures wherever he has worked.

Northeast United CEO, Mandar Tamhane, who worked with Mr. Moosa at BFC said:

Having worked alongside Naushad for over six years, I am confident that he will be an integral asset to the coaching staff and the club as a whole. His ability of setting up youth structures and creating professional pathways for young players speaks for itself and we will be looking at leveraging his experience in this regard.

His knowledge of Indian football is amongst the best in the industry, and this makes him an integral part of the NEUFC thinktank.
