Calcutta: The uncertainty over who will be the East Bengal coach for the forthcoming season grew deeper on Wednesday as club general secretary Kalyan Majumdar said that chances of Armando Colaco retaining the job have been diminished by “90 per cent.”
The club was keen on Colaco, who took charge midway last season. A couple of top officials had gone to Goa to finalise a deal with Colaco. The coach, however, hasn’t clarified his stand till date.
“As things stand, chances of Colaco remaining the coach have gone down by 90 per cent. We aren’t being able to finalise a deal, as the coach is yet to give his nod,”
“We are disappointed with how things have turned up,” Majumdar said .
Asked if they have any alternatives in mind, Majumdar replied: “Yes, we do have some names… But we will not be disclosing them at the moment.”
