Kolkata: East Bengal on Tuesday have confirmed that Subhash Bhowmick has resigned as technical director of the club.
“Mr. Subhas Bhowmik has officially resigned from the services of the Club,” the club said in a statement.
East Bengal appointed Bhowmik as it’s technical director for the 2018-19 season, however, a few weeks ago the AIFF made it clear that the technical directors also need to have the ‘A’ coaching license to work in I-League.
Under the current 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 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.
“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.” Bhowmik said.
On this exit East Bengal General Secretary Kalyan Majumdar said “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.”
