Kolkata: If things go according to the plan, then two times’ ISL champions ATK is set to appoint former Manchester United great and resent Jamshedpur FCD boss Steve Coppell as their new coach for the forthcoming season.
Coppell is highly experienced and his performance in his maiden IPL season for Kerala Blasters caught the eyes of everyone as his team finished as Runners-up.
Jamshedpur FC’s Assistant Coach and Coppell’s loyal deputy Ishfaq Ahmed told www.xtratime.in ,”They were in talks for a long time and the financial issues were the only concern. Yes, he is likely to join ATK this season. Though I am not confirmed but yes, he might join Kolkata.””
ATK is having a strong and fresh squad this season, and the new inclusion would certainly be a big boost for them.
