In the wake of head coach Alejandro Menendez stepping down after a string of poor shows, including the defeat against arch-rivals Mohun Bagan in the season's first Kolkata Derby, East Bengal will look to turn a corner when they take on defending champions Chennai City FC in a crucial I-League clash.
East Bengal on Thursday appointed Mario Rivera as their head coach till the end of the ongoing I-League season. Rivera is expected to take over the reins by the first week of February with fellow assistant Bastab Roy overseeing matters till then as they take on Chennai City FC on January 25 and Indian Arrows on February 1.
Either club would be far from pleased given where they stand on the table as the 13th I-League season approaches its half-way mark. Chennai City are in eighth place, having picked eight points while East Bengal have racked up the same total, but sit a place above in seventh by virtue of a superior goal difference.
