Kolkata: East Bengal Club (“Club”) would like to officially communicate that Mr. Subhas Bhowmik has officially resigned from the services of the Club. Club had appointed Mr. Bhowmik as its Technical Director for the football season 2018-19, however, a few weeks ago the AIFF made it clear that the Technical Directors also needed to hold the ‘A’ license to continue in their present positions. Under this scenario, the Club had no option but to avail the services of licensed coaches for the ensuing I-League. Keeping in mind the long standing association and value brought by Mr. Bhowmik, the Club had approached him to take on the role of a Technical Advisor to the Club, which he refused to take up on a professional basis but has assured the Club that he will advise whenever the need arises.
Subhas Bhowmik quoted “It has been a wonderful and inspiring journey at East Bengal Club and even though I am leaving, I only wish the club success in all endeavours ahead.”
On this exit Mr. Kalyan Majumdar, General Secretary of the Club quoted “East Bengal club recognizes Mr. Subhas Bhowmik as a club legend, an icon who has contributed to the Club’s success both as a player and as a coach continuously over the last 49 years and wishes him the best of health and success for the future.”
