Cesar Farias: The journey from ISL to Copa América

About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

Prior to the ISL 2015, NorthEast United appointed Cesar Farias as their new head coach. Cesar took the chance to revive the club after an unfortunate start in the League. The Guwahati-based club finished at the bottom of the table in the inaugural season of the Hero Indian Super League. Thus, the club wanted to improve the team performance.

At the ending of the 2015 season, the Venezuelan manager’s team finished 5th position, missing out on the playoffs spot on the last day of the ISL season. Cesar indeed improved the team after an unpleasant start by the Highlanders in the past.

Cesar then left ISL and the club and went on to coach in the Paraguayan professional league.
