Coach issue heats up East Bengal interior


Kolkata: The rift between the sponsors and the East Bengal club authorities took a new turn last day as the rep of UB group, Amit Sen had demanded to bring back Trevor James Morgan as the head coach of East Bengal. On the other hand, the likes of Debabrata Sarkar and Kalyan Majumder is looking forward to get an Indian coach who would re-write the winning history of the Red and Golds like Sanjoy Sen did for Mohun Bagan. But if Trevor James Morgan is to be roped in, it has to be after the ISL. In that case, someone like Biswajit Bhattacharya or Prasanta Banerjee would hold the reigns of East Bengal in the domestic league. On the other hand, the names of Derrick Pereira and Santosh Kashyap are still doing the rounds in the interior of the club. Some officials are still keen on getting one of these two men sit on the hot seat of the East Bengal head coach.
