End of all the speculations. Kingfisher East Bengal officially sacks their Head Coach Khalid Jamil on an immediate effect after a series of controversies and below par performance in the previous season. After a prolonged meeting at the East Bengal club tent, the officials have decided that Ranjan Chowdhury will now be the Head Coach and Subhash Bhowmick the Technical Director in the forthcoming Calcutta Football League season.
Khalid had a miserable I-League season as East Bengal finished fourth in the league table and ended up as runners-up of the Super Cup, getting thrashed by Bengaluru FC by 4-1. The fans too were disappointed because of his defensive approach. He also failed to win a single Kolkata derby last season.

Ranjan worked so well for the Bengal Santosh Trophy team this season despite the short time he got and he gets the reward of his hard work as well. He worked as an assistant Coach for the Red and Gold Brigade last season.

It has been decided in the meeting that TD Subhash Bhowmick will select the new coach before the I-League begins. Till then Ranjan and Subhash will work together.
