JAMSHEDPUR: Ahead of the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 season, Jamshedpur FC has signed Owen Coyle as their new head coach.
Coyle comes fresh of spectacular performance in the 2019-20 ISL season, where he took the then bottom-placed club to the tournament finals. The 54-year-old is distinguished by his style of attack-minded football seen in all his previous stints.
"Jamshedpur has a tremendous football legacy. The club has all the right things in place, starting with its vision and translating into a robust foundation of grassroots, youth, Tata Football Academy, and required infrastructure such as fantastic training and accommodation facilities at par with some of those in Europe," Coyle said in a club's official release.
"The vociferous fans have been amongst the best in ISL over the past three seasons, which I had the opportunity to see while soaking in the atmosphere in my debut game in India at the Furnace. This club deserves to be competing at the pinnacle of the ISL and nothing less, and I am excited and honored to have been entrusted with the task," he added.
Coyle is a former English Premier League manager of Bolton Wanderers and Burnley and has also managed Houston Dynamos in Major League Soccer. Agencies
