Panaji: Former national coach of Singapore, Vincent Subramaniam has been appointed head coach of Churchill Brothers for this season, replacing Carlos Alberto Perreira, club patron Churchill Alemao said on Friday.

Bangalore-born Subramaniam has rich experience in coaching as he holds UEFA ‘A’ conversion coaching certificate and AFC/UEFA Professional Diploma.

55-year-old Subramaniam is expected to formally take charge of Churchill Brothers early next week.

Perreira failed to retain the I-league in 2009-10, despite winning two national titles earlier, Alemao said.

Subramaniam was at the helm of affairs at Singapore Armed Forces (1996-98) and Geylang International (1994-95). Between 1978-1984, he was the head coach of the Singapore national youth team. He was the head coach of the Singapore national team from 1998-2000.

Former Churchill Brothers defender Ghanaian Osamanu Husseini, who has been appointed assistant coach, is training the team at the moment.
