The Red and Gold Brigade has had a terrible start to the season, having failed to win a game. SC East Bengal are currently at the bottom of the table with three draws and four losses in their past seven games. Manolo appeared unable to make necessary adjustments to his game plans.
As a result, the Kolkata giants were pummeled on numerous occasions and suffered heavy losses in all areas. The gaffer’s words, which represented his lack of trust and hope in the players, aggravated the situation even more.
The management was under a lot of pressure after such a dismal start to the campaign. According to sources close to the situation, the SCEB think tank has finally decided to make a change and is about to fire their present head coach. After a disappointing debut season in the Indian Super League under Robbie Fowler.
The Wrong Move
Manolo Diaz was brought in by SC East Bengal to help them turn their fortunes around. The former Real Madrid Castilla manager was regarded as a strong contender. His entrance to the team was viewed favourably. But, sadly, the Torch Bearers were in for something else.
East Bengal has already begun the process of appointing a new gaffer. Bridge understands that Dutch manager Eelco Schattorie, who formerly guided Kerala Blasters in the ISL, is at the top of the list. Regardless of who is chosen as the next SCEB manager, a tremendous task awaits them in order to get the squad back on track this season.
