Bengaluru FC name Cuadrat as new coach for one season

BANGALORE: Spaniard Carles Cuadrat has been named the new Bengaluru FC coach on a one-year deal, the club said on Thursday.

An assistant coach at the club for two seasons, Cuadrat takes over the baton from Albert Roca, who bid farewell earlier in May.

“We are thrilled at announcing Carles as our new head coach. Alongside Albert, he played a massive part in changing the way we played football. Given the long association the two have shared, it’s reassuring to know that our philosophy remains intact,” said club CEO Parth Jindal.

Cuadrat’s second season with the Blues had to be cut short after a surgery on his knee forced him to resign and return to Spain in December. 

“I am very happy to come back to the club. I am also grateful to the management for reposing such faith in me. What Albert achieved at the club is special and it won’t be easy to replicate,” said Cuadrat.
