Guwahati: NorthEast United FC on Thursday announced the appointment of Santosh Kashyap as their assistant coach for the upcoming Indian Super League football tournament.
The former India international, who has been credited for Royal Wahingdoh's success from being a second tier side to finish third in the last I-League, said he's excited to be associated with the Northeastern franchise.
"I am also confident that my knowledge of the north-east and Indian football will help him in understanding the dynamics of the squad better," he said in their website.
"I am thankful to (owner) John Abraham and the entire management team at NEUFC for providing me with the opportunity to become a part of this family.
An AFC 'Pro Diploma' license holder, Kashyap has a knack for unearthing talents something he did with the duo of Jackichand Singh and Seityasen Singh who will be up for grabs in the first ever ISL domestic players draft tomorrow in Mumbai.
