East Bengal appoint Roy as head of youth development, assistant coach

Kolkata, June 26 (IANS) City football giants East Bengal on Wednesday appointed former coach Bastab Roy as the head of youth development with the additional responsibility of being the assistant coach of the senior football team for the upcoming football season.

Earlier, East Bengal had appointed Spaniard Josep Ferre as an assistant coach to Alejandro Menendez.

In another announcement, East Bengal extended the contract of goalkeeping coach Abhra Mondal for the 2019-20 season.

Roy, an A-License holder, was at the helm of East Bengal for a short term during the Calcutta Football League last season before the red-and-gold brigade roped in former Real Madrid Castilla coach Menendez Garcia ahead of the 2018-19 I-League season.
