Bengaluru FC and Carle Cuadrat both have decided to part their ways in seek of new changes and challenges. Naushad Moosa will step in as interim head coach.
Cuadrat, who was serving the club for the fifth time two as an assistant and three years as the head coach for the blues will be replaced by Naushad Moosa with immediate effect.
“After deep deliberation with the management, we feel the club needs to head in a new direction – one where the ethos and philosophy of Bengaluru FC begin reflecting again. While we enjoyed success with Carles in the past, we felt there was a departure from the philosophy that we hold true this season, which prompted us to arrive at this decision,”– Parth Jindal, Director, Bengaluru FC
Bengaluru is currently placed at the fifth position of the league table. The club has played nine games with three wins, three draws, and three losses. They have lost three of their last fixtures.
Under Cuadrat’s management, The Blues became the first and only team in the history of the ISL to top the table and win the title in the same season.
The Blues, under the Spaniard, also hold the league record of most consecutive wins, unbeaten streak, and clean sheets. Cuadrat stated;
“I greatly appreciate the club for giving me the opportunity to be Head Coach. It has been a relationship where I have been treated really well and a club that I will always have fond memories of. I would like to thank the owners and management whose vision has been excellent, players who have always been at my service, the staff that I have worked with and that have stood by my side across five seasons, and the fans, who have been tremendous in their support, and without whom we could never have carved out so many beautiful nights at the Kanteerava and away.
“I wish the club all the luck through the season and beyond. This club and the people associated with it will forever be in my heart.”– Carles Cuadrat
New head coach Naushad Moosa’s side will face East Bengal SC this Saturday, at Fatorda Stadium in another fixture of the Indian Super League.
