“SC East Bengal can confirm that the club has agreed with Robbie Fowler to a mutual termination of the head coach’s contract.

Alongside his assistant Tony Grant, he took charge of the team in a very challenging period of transition and managed to overcome significant odds to bring the fans some moments of joy in the club’s first ever season in the Hero Indian Super League.

Everyone at SC East Bengal would like to wish Robbie all the best with his future endeavours and look forward to his continued association with Shree Cement Limited.


Fowler had joined the club last year in October. Under the guidance of the Liverpool legend, SC East Bengal had a disappointing season as they only managed to garner seventeen points from first eighteen league fixtures and were placed ninth of eleven.

It has been announced that the former Real Madrid Castilla coach Manuel ‘Manolo’ Diaz has been appointed as the new head coach for the Indian Super League 2021-22 season.

Manuel Diaz has 20 years of coaching experience including a significant period of time in the Real Madrid C.F. setup. The club reiterated that “Manolo brings with him a wealth of experience and a winning mentality.”
It is to be noted that the 53-year old has an overall win rate of 41.77 percent over 328 matches coached in his two-decade career, and a 46.66 win rate in his latest stint at Real Madrid Castilla (2018-19).
“In Madrid, we say ‘Winning is in our DNA’. We love the pressure and expectation that comes with coaching a big club,” Manolo said.
“Time is short and there is a long and difficult road ahead, but we will do our best to deliver good performances for all SC East Bengal fans.”
