Diaz’s appointment came minutes after the club parted ways with Englishman and Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler, who coached the Kolkata giants to a ninth-place finish in the ISL last season.

“SC East Bengal can confirm that the club has agreed with Robbie Fowler to a mutual termination of the head coach’s contract,” SC East Bengal announced on its official Twitter handle. Just a few minutes after the first tweet, SC East Bengal made another announcement, this time that of the appointment of Spaniard Diaz.

“SC East Bengal is proud to welcome former Real Madrid Castilla coach Manuel ‘Manolo’ Diaz as the new head coach for the Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 season," the second tweet read.

With over 20 years of coaching experience, including a significant period of time in the Real Madrid setup, Manolo brings with him a wealth of experience and a winning mentality.

The Spaniard has an overall win rate of 41.77 percent over 328 matches coached in his two-decade-long career and a 46.66 win rate in his latest stint at Real Madrid Castilla (2018-19).
