Kolkata: Subrata Bhattacharya today made a comeback to Chirag United after the I-League side reinstated
the former India international as the coach.
"There had been some misunderstandings with him
(Bhattacharya) in the past that led to his parting ways. But
we have sorted this out and he is appointed as coach," club
chairman Kaustav Roy told PTI after a meeting to appoint the
coach this evening.
"We know that the I-League is over for us but the focus
now is to win the Calcutta League for which we need his
experience," Roy said, adding that Bhattacharya will attend
practise sessions from tomorrow.
Asked about the contract, Roy said, "It`s yet to be
decided. But he remains our coach and the post was lying
vacant when he was not there. It`s a good news that he is back
at the helm."
The decision came two months after the Chirag United
officials decided to part ways.
The Kolkata outfit, when Bhattacharya was the coach, was
in the title contention holding the second spot on the
I-League standings. The club were badly hit after his
departure as the team currently stands in seventh spot on the
table with one match remaining.
In the local league, the side, however, remains in the
title race as their last league match against Mohun Bagan on
May 25 will decide the winners.
